3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Eureka Burger. Pitch black with a tan head. Sweet roasted malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor with some caramel and chocolate. Hops and bitterness are mild. A little dried fruit and plum flavors and some savory, almost shoyu-like hints as well. Definitely a Sam smiths style RIS. Not my kind of stout though. This needs lot more hops.
