3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is dark brown, almost black with a medium thin light tan head that dissipates to an outer ring quickly. Stringy lacing. Roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Medium, dry body with roasted malt, coffee and semi-sweet chocolate flavors. The finish is roasted coffee with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.
