2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes. On tap before KTG 2010.
Pours a moderate brown with a light head. The nose is some light chocolate and coffee in addition to roasted malt. The taste is slight chocolate and roasted malt. Mild coffee character. Really doesn’t push anything too far and is a bit bland. Moderate body with a bit of alcohol. Drinks decently, but isn’t all that great.
Serving type: on-tap

(22oz bottle thanks to jkwalking05) Pours a medium brown, nose is lightly roasted malt, flavor has crisp dark chocolate bite and roasty malts. Body is too watery for me, but carbonation is just right. Finishes well despite the watery body.
