3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Ginger Man. Dark brown colour, thick sticky tan head. Aroma is quite coffee-laden. Lots of dark malts, some faint cherry sweetness and a bit of toasted grain. Flavour is also loaded with coffee and light roast. Lightly vegetal with a bit of cold coffee character. A fairly prominent bitterness that is somewhat atypical for the style. It’s a pretty nice coffee beer.
