3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a almost pure black color with a medium beige head. A sweet nose of dark fruit and cocoa. The flavor has bitterness creeping in at all the edges, caramel, spicy rye, some heat. The hop profile is oddly complicated and doesn’t shine super well. Otherwise, a solid brew.
