3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Three Floyds. Pours black with a foamy brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, toasted malt, and lactic notes. Taste is of rich chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, vanilla, and caramel. Has a malt backbone that seems more toasty then roasted. Also has some lactic character to it as well. Lingering taste of chocolate, and the toasty malt. Body is lighter than I expected, and mouthfeel seems a tad too thin. No presence of the alcohol. lighter than I expected, but it was tasty. The thinness actually made it a beer that I could session.
