3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 Heavy dark brown with a lasting thin beige head. Nice aroma of toast, caramel, roastiness, and bready yeast with just a hint of citrus and pear. Nice full body with a light yet spritzy carbonation. Flavors of roastiness and earthy caramel start the flavor with some dates, citrus peel, doughy yeast, and burnt toast. Finishes nice and yeast-estery dry, with a gentle touch of black licorice.
