2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
You can’t judge a beer by it’s color. I was expecting a more robust aroma as well as flavor. This is leaving a lot to be desired. A dark pour with a small almondish head. Hints of smoke, black cherries and almonds. The finish is flat and dry.
