3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich, unctuous brown, topped with a healthy tan head. Aromas of chocolate, spicy hops and a touch of roasted coffee abound. Tastewise, a melange of chocolate, burnt caramel, and some coffee is balanced nicely with a firm though unobtrusive hop bite. Medium bodied, nicely pintable at 5%, and very moreish. More like this please brewers of Virginia!
