tmoreau (4160) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2012
3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap and Mug Club served at the Yorktown brewpub, showing a deepest brown color with some short lived, light tan head foam, and minimal dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was roasty, coffee, light smoke & char, a bit of graham cracker scent, and a touch of toffee. The flavor followed with moderate hop bitterness, medium body, good carbonation, a hint of treacly sweetness, but mainly a dry and crisp character that was nicely complementary with the late afternoon appetizers. Also very drinkable!
