Draft at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with a nice tan head. Aroma was sweet coffee notes, some very light roasted character. Taste has a lot of roast character, some light coffee notes. Touch of sour character to it perhaps - at least that’s the impression we got at the table from it. Didn’t realize it was only 3.8% until just now. Very impressed with this one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: Draft at MacDowell Brew Kitchen. It pours a light brown with a thin tan head. The nose has light coffee and roasted nut notes. The flavor follows suit with just enough coffee to pair with a light, nutty brown ale. English in nature with a twist. Very drinkable and at a low abv, a great session brew for malt fans.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Coffee aroma, sweet start, strong slightly bitter finish. Distinct thin/light mouthfeel is a contrast to the bold flavor. Moderate carbonation blends with bite that finishes surprisingly smooth for such a robust brew. Coffee lovers must try.
