3.54/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Good clarity. A very dark brown, but ruby highlights are highly visible when held to the light. A contrasting white head vanishes almost instantly.
Smell: Burnt mocha and overripe banana bread. Not terrible, but not very promising.
Taste: A remarkably clean aftertaste doesn't do this beer any flavors, as the roasted dark chocolate flavor seems to simply fall off a cliff with every sip. The overripe banana is also found in the taste, and somehow workks well with unexpected alcohol flavors, making something of a rum cake mixture.
Mouthfeel: Thin and watery, but with a bit of fizz.
Overall: Some interesting elements, but walks a strange, thin line between flavorful and flavorless that ultimately makes it forgettable.
Serving type: on-tap
