3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy brown head that left some lacing. The aroma was malty, toasty and had notes of ripe dark fruits and wood. The flavor was malty, smoky and woody with a chewy toasty base and notes of sharp floral hops, scotch whiskey and fig. The finish was long and malty with lingering cherry, smoke and wood. Fairly full bodied. Interesting.
