3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown. Creamy roast aroma - quite nutty, with light toast. Body borders on being too thin, which combined with overprickly carbonation and lack of head makes me wonder if the bottle conditioning was such a good idea. Roast barley acidity starts off, leading to a bitter middle - more toast than nut. Finish is quite dry, a little butter note and the everpresent nuts. Lingering roast but still seems thin.

Let me begin by saying that this beer was carbonated. Really carbonated. Sure it started coming out of the bottle when I opened it, but it kept coming out. I held the bottle over the glass for at least 2 minutes while it foamed over the side of the bottle into the glass. Once I was finally able to pour, I found a nice black body with just a touch of red. Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, some coffee. Taste is chocolate complemented by coffee, finishing roasty mocha. Medium body. A simple beer, but a tasty one for certain.
