3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at 38 Degrees for the Full Pint 6th Anniversary. Clear deep red highlights on an inky pour. Low carbonation. Excellent, rich barrel nose with vanilla, butter, and flashes of gamey tequila. Taste is silky, soft, some soy, malted milk balls, bitter chocolate. Balancing bitterness and neutral sugar. Oily finish. Nice.
