3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Super dark brown, moderate frothy light beige head, nice lacing.   Bitter roasty nose, slight ash, a little bakers chocolate.   Pale roastiness on the tongue, slightly ashy, a little dry.   Body and
mouthfeel are moderate, albeit at times this one feels a little thin.   Finishes with little malt, a touch dry, ashy, pale roasted malts, a little dark chocolate, without much hops.   Seems bordering on a thin example of your
standard Porter.   Has the right flavors, but lacks malts and general thickness.   Too thin and boring, but without much fault.
