3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, San Francisco. Rated on 13.10.2012.
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, tobacco and strong ash notes. Flavour is pretty similar; roasted malts, really strong tobacco notes, grassy hops and dark chocolate. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a bitter finish where tobacco comes through even more than before. Good.

Great looking deep sasparilla color with firm chocolate head. Wonderful medley of deep chocolate and dark chocolate notes in flavor and aroma. Roast is stronger in aroma than in flavor. Very creamy and definitely nitrogenated.
