3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Faint non-descript aroma, with less than average carbonation. Sweet, but not much else. Black color, obviously. Disappointing lack of complexity and gravitas, and I’m partial to black beers. Could use some more hops, caramel, or just plain old ABV.
