2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a hint of ruby in places. The head formed was a medium tan and thick, with fairly good retention. Smells malty with a chocolate overtone, quite nice. The taste is sort of woodsy, with a lot of coffee in the finish and some very subtle bitterness.
