On-tap at Blue Palms for Drake's/Triple Rock Tap Takeover
A: The beer pours almost black in color with a finger of creamy tan head.
S: The nose is almost all roast and ash. Some notes of dark, bitter chocolate are also present, and some coffee and coffee grounds. Maybe a hint of licorice. Not terribly complex, but quite nice.
T: The flavor is fairly bitter from all of the intense roastiness. Quite a strong ash and char flavor with some dark chocolate and coffee. Somewhat astringent and slightly acidic as well.
M: Medium in body and carbonation.
O: I liked the nose on this quite a bit, but the flavor fell short and was just too heavy on the burnt flavors and bitterness.
Serving type: on-tap
