3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sasparilla body topped by a ring of head. Moderate, but certainly noticeable influence of black patent in the aroma and flavor, but pretty forgettable overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a large, fizzy looking but long-lasting, tan head that leaves good lace. Smells subdued just like every brew here. Mostly smells of dishtowel with a little bit of roasted malts. Tastes roasty and sweet chocolatey again with the dishtowel. Medium, somewhat watery body, good carbonation.
