JPDIPSO (6296) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Dark brown body with a tall, lasting light beige head. Scents of roasted malt and just a hint of biscuit and herbal hops. Flavors follow scents. Thinner flavors in the finish that I’m not sure if I want more or less.

Draft. Hazy brown color, tan head. Aroma of coffee, toffee, dark fruit. Taste has cocoa, coffee, plums. Not bad.
