2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear brown body with a small wispy brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is very chocolaty with some roast, coffee, caramel, and slightly citrusy hops. The flavor is a little thin though, not a whole lot of chocolate malt showing thru, itís more of a bland and slightly weak roasted malt flavor. Minimal hoppiness, just enough to help balance out the sweetness some. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, a below average effort for the style.
