Sampled at gabf. Black. An ashy kind of smoky nose. Chocolate plus what I smelled are tasted. Some zingy hops bring a bit of bitterness. Fruit. Decent balance here. Homer321 (5192) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle thanks to Gription79. Poured to glass. Nose is moderate tobacco with some ashiness. Definitely more on the earthy dirty side than chocolate. Pour us lack with a huge, light brown head. Taste is initially acidic with a dried tobacco note. Lightly smokey as well. Some creaminess in the finish. Overall a decent offering but the lack of anything that’s not lighter than burnt coffee beans kind of turns me off a little.
