Kentucky

3.5/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an opaque deep brown with ruby highlights and a fleeitng half inch burnt caramel head that leaves no lacing.

Roast malt, caramel, brown sugar, and chocolate open the aroma, with underlying dark fruit and coffee adding complexity.

Flavor is fairly sweet, with roasty malt kicking in a slightly bitter finish. Chocolate and dark cherries, and coffee are present, with chocolate definitely dominating. There's just a touch of acrid flavor.

Body is a tad syrupy, with low carbonation and slight alcohol warmth.

Overall, on the sweet and syrupy side, but decent roast character...and chocolate...lots of chocolate. Definitely a dessert beer.

1pint bottle

A- Black, no light comeing thru this one. 2 finger high head that is light coco in color, very creamy in appearance. Nice lacing up the sides as the head falls, there is visable lacing on the inside of the bottle, nice.

S- Malty, cocoa, bready, some slight sweetness from the bottle, more sweet coming from the glass.

T- Slightly sweet up front, then gets kinda...bland. Having a hard time tasting the malts and cocoa that is present from the bottle, slight metallic aftertaste.

M- Not quite medium, a soft slick feeling, its ok.

O- Looks good, smells decent from the bottle, not a fan of the flavor as it gets bunched up into nothing, was really hard for me to pick out the flavors that I smelled. Glad I did not pay much for this one, wont be getting it again.

A - Dark smoky color. Bit high on the froth, which comes out to a chocolate cream color.

S - Light smell, kind of bland. Can't really smell the sharp chocolate flavor.

T - No distinct flavor. No spices or chocolate taste.

M - Goes down smooth, and has a slight flavor that lingers.

O - Nothing that stands out. Light flavor and light feel.
