3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a black color with a one fingerís worth of white to off white foamy head that dissipated at a decent pace. Semi-thick rings of white foamy lace.
The aroma had a nice blend of roasted coffee beans, and cocoa beans. Some dark fruits coming across fairly dry.
The flavor takes the dry roasty side and brings in some toast. Seems like bakerís chocolate as well coming across. Sly roasty coffee to cocoa aftertaste with a crisp roasty finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt good and appropriate.
Overall, actually, not bad McNeilís, usually a brewer I donít care for their beers but this was actually good.
