Bottle 650ml (ABM, BBE 10/2014)
Dark, almost opaque black color, small steady beige head. Ashy and milky toasted aroma. Light-bodied. Ashy, a bit milky flavor. Very watery palate even for this ABV. Maybe aging has "removed" all the hops? Lame.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark black color with a clean malt aroma. Taste is simple malt with a mild roasted caramel flavor. The tiny bitterness at the end of the beer quickly disappears. The oatmeal flavor is evident in the aaftertaste. Wish this beer was more complex.
