3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black body with a thick well-lasting light tan head. Nose has chokolate, roasted malts, smoke and some sourness. Taste is mild and soft with a light dryness on the finish. Carbonation is very soft and the palate is somewhat watery. This was excellent at first, but after a while started to feel diluted and watery. Go figure.
