3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black body with a medium sized tan head and spotty lacing. Intense coffee and espresso. Assertive roasted and earthy malts. Medium bodied with moderate to lively carbonation. Fairly aggressive bitterness from the coffee. A bit more intense than I’d prefer as it loses any real depth from the malt profile. A coffee fiend will probably get more out of this than me.
