3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro draft at Khyber Pass. Opaque pour with a large foamy khaki head. Tastes generally smooth with a bit of extra caramel funk at the very end. Some leather and charcoal. Sweetens but nerfs a bit. Oddish notes popping up in between the solid standard stout notes. Maybe a window shutter is off key (whatever that means.) Not bad but NOT perfect.
