Candied, dark malty, acidic, moderately sweet. Finishes bitter and slightly salty. Some woodiness, some soapiness. Slightly chalky finish, which is bitter, but still acidic. Aroma was faint. Good but a bit off balance somehow. Dull chocolate in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has a cheap roasty/nuttiness and a hint of burnt toffee. Flavor follows suit but steps up the toffee and adds that earthy bitterness for balance...slight booziness...muddled. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a dry earthy/burnt toffee finish.
