3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Churchkey for the DC distribution launch of Maine Beer Co. Rich black pour with a light tan bubbly head. Nose and flavor bring lovely coffee grind bitterness, some definite caramel and slight plum sweetness from the candy sugar, and good hoppy bite from the alpha acids of the Columbus/Falconer’s Flight. Beautifully dry and well-attenuated, especially given the adjuncts. Very very good.
