2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
From an old scrap of paper with some tasting notes. Draft from the Bottleworks. Pours dark brown with a lacing tan head. Aromas of cocos dust, dark chocolate and a good roasted malt note. Subtle nuances of anise and cookie dough. Full bodied with a malt dominant palate and a solid effervescence that adds to the zestiness of the body. Good roast and a sweet drinker!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has cocoa, roasty malt, hints of coconut and light veggies. Medium / thin body that starts smooth then gets a little rough and has semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts out with cocoa, dark caramel, smooth roast, very light coconut, some minerals and a spiciness that seems like it is from hops, but not sure. The finish has more chocolate coming out. The beer is a lot drier than expected as well. Quite nice variation.
