1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Room temp bottle 6.4% BB May 2014. Bought from the brewery in August. Pours black with no head. Smell…vinegar? In a porter? Body is medium. Taste is slight cheese and smoke. Surely it’s not meant to taste this way, but it doesn’t taste infected (I don’t rate beers that are obviously infected). Ergh.
