3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle thanks to yobdoog, shared with Ed5388. Poured a medium density pitch black with an aversge at best big bubbly deep beige head. Aroma of acetone, black olives, bad chocolates, lemon and cherry. Flavor is better than aroma, light dark chocolate notes, burnt toast, dark cherry and lemon juice, slight band aid on the back end, burnt marshmallows. Body is meh, a bit thin for how big the beer is and carbonation is average. Meh its okay.
