2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The pour is nearly black with a tan head. Rather strong on the roasted malt aroma, a bit of coffee. The nose is sort of sour with a bit of red grape and cherry aroma to it. Weird. The sourness is more pronounced on the palate. Heavy roasted malt which adds to the acidity. Mild coffee, a light earthiness, and just a rather meh feeling to the beer.
