3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black beer, big brown head. Nose is mildly bready, vague chocolate and coffee, caramel, but again, vague and weak. Flavor is roast, some metallic hints, coffee, some warmth from the alcohol. Finish has some more roast and alcohol warmth, chocolate and caramel. The finish is the best thing about this beer, as are the chocolate retronasals. OK, the aftertaste with lingering hop-tinged chocolate is pretty nice too. Smells unremarkable, and the first two thirds of the taste are also unremarkable. An odd one, but not bad.
