Donn's Famous Horse Cram It In - Tasting Notes
On a chilly, dreary day last week, I decided to tap the latest batch and see how it turned out.
Appearance (0-3): Pours up a nice, clear brown with ruby highlights. Small tan head that disappears quickly. 2 points.
Aroma/Bouquet (0-4): Very faint aroma at first, but as I grew used to it, I could smell something that smelled of chocolate, some dark fruit and . . .something odd. I've been trying to place the aroma, but can't. I don't think it's supposed to smell that way, though. 2 points
Taste (0-10): Starts off with subtly as the flavor hits the sides of the tongue, leaving a slight chocolate; some sharp bitterness on the back of the tongue, and some fruity flavors that I can't identify. Low carbonation, and slightly thin. 5 points
Overall Impression (0-3): Again, the beer eludes me. It's okay, but not great. It hovers just below good. Maybe with more carbonation it will get better. 1 point.
Total: 10 points
