2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Description: "A dark amber IPA with bready notes, slightly sweet, spicy and a herbal finish."
On tap at Capone’s. Served in a mini snifter.
Pours copper with a short white head that persists for a bit before falling and not leaving any real head behind. The nose is quite floral with some malt. Really kind of earthy as well, with an almost coffee-like presence. Kind of odd, but kind of nice. The flavor has some malt and a bit of light sweetness but not too much hop flavor. Decent bitterness. Some earthiness. Just okay.
Serving type: on-tap

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Capone’s. Pours a clear amber color with a white head. Aroma of citrus, earth, and pine. Flavor shocks you though. Very little hop bitterness and a dominant presence of smoke. Thought I had the wrong beer. Some earthiness, citrus and caramel, but lots of smoke. Nice beer!
