3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Max’s. Pours clear amber to tawny with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is chocolate, nutty, and toast malt, peppers, dates, and leather. Flavor is malty, light hops and bitterness, peppers, and a lightly sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation. The peppers were very subdued here, which is unfortunate.
