3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(on draught at Aces and Ales). Pours a dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has cocoa, caramel, light coffee and some roast. Taste is sweet malts with some astringent bitterness. Light to medium bodied with a slick texture. A bit fizzy on the texture. Pretty easy to drink, but the carbonation makes the beer almost soda-like.
