3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large and small bubbled head. Cascade galore in aroma, orangey, grapefruity, and smoke. What an interesting combo! Very IPA-like. Flavors are herbal, minty?, chewy and round; no burntness. This is rather chewy and soft and a very unusual example of a stout. Is this the pale ale with brown food coloring?
