3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On nitro tap at Carlsbad. Pours with a retentive creamy, nitro off-white-tan head over a clear dark brown hued body with red highlights. Aromas are huge coffee, lactose, chocolate, bready and toasty. Flavors are sweet, brown sugar, coffee, toasty, nutty. Missing body, but I have no idea where the 8%ABV is hiding. Creamy, lactose, but feels a touch thin. Tasty.
