3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, taupe head. Good retention. As expected, the bouquet is a bit odd – herbal sassafras, dark chocolate and a whisper of sourmash whiskey. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is chocolaty with a touch of mint and a mild, herbal, sarsaparilla component. Tilts just a tad toward the sweet side of balance. Things wrap up with nice mocha and a subtle kiss of acidity.
