4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: roasty,grass, citrus. Appearance: black with a red tinge when held up to the light like all good dark beers, head dissipated quickly. Taste: light sweetness, medium bitterness, hints of roast malts mixed in with hop bitterness other wise the taste we all hops. Palate: light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, long bitter and roasty finish. Overall: An excellent beer on a hot day. All the hop flavours that i love along with a hint of maltyness to remind me of the cold day yesterday. Possibly could have done with a touch more malt flavour but then the alcohol would have gone up.

I can see what they did with this one, but it didnt come together for me unfortunately. Palate was thin and everything was dulled down (as the description indicates). I enjoy PKB for what it is and I love its big and roasty flavours which this seems to take down a few too many notches
