4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Barcade. I really enjoyed this beer. I think, though, that this beer style is a bit undervalued by many raters. Obviously this doesn’t match up against an imperial stout. This beer was well-balanced between the hops and malts and had a smooth finish. Pleasant aftertaste. Great sessioner.

Nothing special about this one. A little malty, and for some reason a bit of fruit in there as well.
