3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Boulder Draft House. Pours black with a small, fizzy light brown head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, chocolate, nutty), little to no hops, average yeast (dough, leather, leaves) with notes of plum, dates, brown sugar, and vanilla. Medium bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at RFD. Very black, medium light tan head, long-lasting. Aroma of black bread and raisins. Light smoke flavor, but not too much else, maybe just a bit of roasted coffee. But overall lacks complexity.

Crushed with Jakebra at the brewpub. Some roast, some coffee, some poop. Flavor is smooth but unexceptional. It’s aight and drinkable but not great and very thin.
