3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served on cask at the Top of the Hops Beer Festival, Charlottesville, 9/11/10. Pours a thin looking milky brown color with nearly no head. Very much mud-like. The aroma is thankfully much better than the beer looks, though it is somewhat one note, as a nice sweet coffee dominates everything else in the aroma. The taste is a bit more complex, with coffee, caramel, citrus hops and faint chocolate. Medium bodied. Looks like hell, but still a pretty nice beer.
