3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Schaumburg location tent at GABF. Pours with a hazed brown body and a lasting tan head. Aromas of coffee, roast, spicy hops and chocolate. Flavors lean towards hops more than roast (which is how I personally like the style). Fruity, estery, citrus and lightly spicy. Medium to lively carbonation. Decently dry.
