3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery, this pours almost black with mahogany fringes, a tan head reduces to soapy lacing. The nose is woody and smoked. Flavors follow suit, leaning toward roasts more than sweet malt accents. Woody, roasted and smoky, it is soft on the palate, and an easy quaff.
