3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-06-21. Black body with a small tan head. 3+ Flavour is mild, sweet dark malt, light roast, light bitterness, hints at lactose that I might not have interpreted as such if tasted blind. Mild lingering roast in the finish. 6+ Similar aroma of mild roast over a modest sweet malt foundation. Mild roast. Smooth average plus bodied palate, light carbonation. Relatively simple, but a pretty decent take on the style. OCB Week Tap Takeover at Volo, Toronto.
