Tap at PPOB. Hazy, deep ruby black pour with medium tan foam. Savory, smokey nose with candy cane and pine. Taste is soapy, thinner body at first, dusty, cocoa mix. Taste is nicely bitter, lively. Almost like a spiced, smoked porter. Bonus for being interesting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Pizza Port Ocean Beach. Pours black with a thin khaki head that fades quickly. A fair amount of spice rack on the nose. There’s lots of different favors on the tongue but they seem kind of muddled. Solid but not mandatory.
