skoisirius (1072) – Earth, USA – JUN 30, 2012
11.2oz from Belmont Station in Portland. Pours a deep dark brown, barely able to see through at all. Aroma is roasty toasty with gentle hints of banana, rose, and the hibiscus. Flavor is sweet up front with the rose (and the berries?), and gets spicier with the hibiscus as the flavor settles on the palate. Remains fairly roasted throughout. Has a nice kick to it. Lingers. Quite a thick brew, lips smacking for sure.
