3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black basically, but the bottle appeared to have a red hue. Aroma is chocolate mocha cookie. Hints of fruit wine. Sweet buiscuit. Yeah cookie really. Same in taste with a classic dark malt berry taste. Rich, nutty malt. Berry. Roasty. Smooth some ashyness, cigar, leather with chocolate. pretty nice brown ale. Hint of smoke almost. Move over hazel nut brown ale.
