0.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
There was heavy, thick sediment in the bottle. It pours a very foamy head with half the glass full of head.
The aroma is dirt, chocolate and nuts.
The taste is sour.
The texture is super fizzy.
I may be a bad bottle. I will try to find another to compare.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
beautiful dark brown with a haze and visible texture and a creamy barely tan head that clung to the glass. hazelnut aroma, rich and bold, a bit of leafy hop balance is present as well. sessionable in body and complexity, the nutty character is up front, not dominating, and washes away clean.
