2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap @ brewery. Cloudy, reddish orange appearance with light brown head. Really rich dark, bitter coffee grounds mostly dominate the aroma. Lemon, orange citrusy, light barnyard, rich coffee ground flavor. Seemed like not a good idea and really was awkward.
Pour was clear red with white head, aroma was apparent across the table, with big notes of ground espresso, roasted coffee, hints of toffee and acidity. Taste is big, big coffee ground notes, a bit of acidity and toffee, but the coffee really overpowers everything else.
