3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
The first whiff was caramel, molasses, brown sugar, and chocolate malts, but the subsequent nasal experience was slightly different: cereal, instant coffee, earth, tobacco, and spicy hops. The mouthfeel is runny, with a thin body and medium carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter and mildly sweet, with an earthy, roasty finish. Very drinkable.
