3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big creamy tan beige head which disappears very slow and leaves a sticky lacing on top of a deep dark brown colored beer.
Smell is a decent mix of smoke, smoke malts, soap, coal.
The taste is a soft and gentle mix of coal, smoke, malts, toasted malts, hint of some light coffee. Mostly a soft gentle smoked malty taste.
Aftertaste is a light mix of coal, roasted malts, low medium bitterness. Nice gentle mix.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, good medium to lightly fuller body and a watery texture.
