    10.00% abv.
    • Date: October 30, 2021 (#10750)
      Package: draught
      Score: 18½ points
      Appearance (3)
      Black. Massive creamy head.
      Aroma (3½)
      Dark chocolate. Earthy. Mildly grassy, but mostly subtle and balanced.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Big body, smooth. Richly chocolatey and nicely roasty. Hugely malty. Mild grassy hop flavor, a little floral, but pretty much all the bitterness is from the roasted malt.
      Overall Impression (3)
      Excellent balance. Excellent beer.

      Probably a good example in a style that I just don't like.
