3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild ipa where the chocolate mellows the hops! Pours nearly black w/ a foamy tan head & spotty lacing. The aroma is robust w/ hops & dark malt. The body is similar to a milk stout - creamy & almost soft w/ roasted malt notes. The hop presence is light & finishes a tad bitter. Alcohol is well hidden. Solid!
