3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Sockeye brewpub pouring deep dark brown with tan head. The aroma is a mix of burnt malts and sweet black licorice rolling into chocolate and a touch of caramel. The taste is pretty sweet with malts heading toward some chocolate and dark roasted malts. Into the finish it picks up a pleasing sense of earthiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Darker brown pour with a very retentive tan head. Light cocoa and gentle roast notes are on the nose. Tender cocoa notes blended with a mild roast and even hints at coffee come through on the flavor here. Medium bodied and quite smooth. Gentley carbonated. By far my pick of the 10 lot I had.

Best beer I had in Boise (out of 20 different brews in one day) Pure maltiness, very low texture, bery low mouth feel from assumed low carbonation. Excellent head retention and nice med-full body.
