2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ Local Option during the 666 Minutes ov Beer fest: Deep brown with minimal head. The aroma and flavor is nutty, roasty and earthy tobacco with a smooth but under carbonated body. There is a interesting bitterness that must come from the burdock which once was a bittering agent before hops came into play. Thing is I am just not a fan of chicory and hate it in coffee which is why I am not a fan of this beer, just saying.

Tasty porter, lower body but nice smoky richness from the roased chicory. Liked it.
