4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Horniblows Tavern. Pours black, with a nice beige head, nice retention. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, vanilla, earthiness, scotch. Flavor is similar, very smooth, very flavorful, blended well enough for flavors to work together, and not one flavor overpowering others. Alcohol present in aroma and flavor, has a nice warming effect. Delicious beer.
