3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark brown color, almost black. Small tan head. Fruity hops, a bit of roastiess. Well balanced, bitter enough but not too much, a bit coffee and orange, some sweetness. Thin to medium body, creamy texture, but lively carbonation was small disappointment. Medium long coffee and hoppy finish. Very interesting, really enjoyed this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Against the Grain, Dublin. Dark brown with red-amber tints, a nice tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, toasted malt, peach and grapefruit hoppy notes, and a nutty character. The flavour is roasted to burnt malt, with some juicy hop character, and a nutty and bitter final. Dry and fairly light palate with a lively carbonation.
