3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Tylerís, Apex. Chilly afternoon post-game and a beer like this seemed just the ticket. Handsome enough look to the beer, but it wasnít quite the thick and creamy brew Iíd hoped for. Despite the thinnish body, it was fairly flavorful if a bit light on the roasts for the style (more rich and milk chocolatey). Decent.

Sample @ Oskar Blues in Asheville. Dark brown pour with a small head. Plenty of chocolate and coffee creamer. Some butterscotch candied. Nice ashy roast malt character to balance out the chocolate. A touch of acid. Creamy supple body. Well-rounded stuff. Nice.
