11 ounce goblet - $7.25 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.
Appearance: Served up a very dark brown body capped off by a Ľ-inch high, faintly beige-tinged head.
Smell: Charred wood bark, lightly accented with notes of toaster oven-toasted bread and roasted malt with a slight fruitiness (not particularly aromatic in that department) and a few drops of pine resin and alcohol.
Taste: B-E B gets you get your toast, it gets you some roast, and a few shavings of predominately bitterish chocolate. Some fruity components enter, tasting of black raspberry as well as citric white grapefruit. A firm, cumulative bitterness follows shortly thereafter. The taste briefly turns somewhat malty after the midpoint, but retains the aforementioned fruitiness until the bitter, lightly resinous finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s OK, I suppose, though not particularly a winner for me. Ever onward, Dank Tank!
