3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Union. Served in a Union sampler glass. Pours a very dark brown. Nose is really nice with roast and chocolate alongside a faint hoppiness. Rich body with heavy chocolate and a bit of roast. Nice backing oats. A bit too roasty through the finish for me, but otherwise quite nice.
