3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown clear pour appearing almost black in glass, frothy light brown head about one finger and medium long. Subtle aroma has bit ash, slightly roasted malt, licorice, quite delicate and tempting. Medium body, soft round feel, nice malting, bit caramel, chocolate, ash, flavors linger in mouth and I want them to stay semisweet. Tasty, good palate, enjojyed.
