3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Lighter in color for the style, medium brown with a decently well-formed off-white head. Toasty, chocolatey, and nutty aroma. Very nice and balanced. Great flavor, very nutty and a little hoppy. Tootsie roll/milk chocolate flavors along with a little earth and light toast. Dry on the palate with medium body. Surprisingly good beer overall. Excellent for the style.
