4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with a really dense, tight foam head very, very milky aroma, with just a tinge of sugar. Flavor is woody, chocolately, and there are some little hops in there on the finish. Silky, milky mouthfeel. Draws down with a curtain of foam but then runs down clean. If you donít know how already, learn how to enjoy this beer.
