Finally a decent brew from Big Boss. I know it was largely only a name-change situation, but it seems to me that quality suffered QUITE a bit when Edenton Street became Big Boss. I long for the days of Horniblow's Ale. Sigh. This one, however, ain't half bad!
Appearance: like coffee with a head
Aroma: Coffee, nuts, dark chocolate, chicory
Taste: Coffee, toffee
Palate: Very smooth! Bravo!
Overall: A bit watery on the end (what I call the "American curse"), much like a cold Irish Coffee -- rather dark for a brown ale, almost a light porter. Nice work, really.
Serving type: bottle
