3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 12/7/12
Aroma: This one has a light roasty nose, fairly malty, and a bit one dimensional
Appearance: This one has a brown colored pour with a small head and minimal lace
Flavor: it has a dry roasted coffee flavor mostly, and with some other malts too
Palate: This one has a medium body, though it feels a touch watery, and has a soft carbonation
This beer is fine enough, I guess. There’s nothing super off about it or anything, but it just didn’t do much for me. Eh...

Draft, scamper: good, it’s a medium brown with a tan head, I wish the roasty chocolaty notes that are in the aroma translated as much into the sweet flavor, but I won’t complain because I enjoyed it quite a bit, and they were still there enough to make me very happy.
