3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Red’s. Poured an opaque cola-like, dark brown color. The head was light brown. Interesting aroma profile that included the likes of flower blossom, citrusy Pez candy, dark malts, and distinct guava. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with mild to moderate bitterness. Dark malt, citrus, and tropical fruit flavors.

Tap at TG. Nose is citrus and piney hops, somewhat floral, with a touch of roast. Pours a murky black, tan head with decent retention. Flavor is fairly hop-forward, roasty malts are there but are subdued, some coffee notes, resin and pine sap. Body is light-medium, medium carbonation, smooth and slightly creamy on the tongue. Nice brew.
