2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap @ PPBC. Dark orangish brown appearance with a cream colored head. Soapy, a touch floral, somewhat roasty, fairly nonexistent aroma. Soapy/earthy hoppy, roasty malty, moderate coffee flavor. These guys seem to be hit or miss for me and this is a miss.
