3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black color, brown head, stripes of lace. Taste is bittersweet toasted malt, light carbonation, and mouth-drying hops in the finish. Big taste, wouldn’t take much to overfill me. Nearly works, but balance and flavor miss the mark.
