Destihl Moonjumper

Fill date: 11/21/17

Judged to 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines for: 16A Sweet Stout

AROMA: Dark grain, almost graham cracker-like. Coffee-with-creamer sweet impression. Low floral hops. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Dark brown with ruby highlights (44+ SRM). Large dark tan foamy head completely dissipates. 2/3

FLAVOR: Dark roasted malt up front, but with a significant fruity/tarty flavor on the back end. Slight sourness/tang. Lacking the rich sweetness of the style. 8/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; medium-low carbonation. Smooth texture, but flat sensation. Clean aftertaste. Feels much lighter than 6.1% ABV. 2/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Appears to be an infected batch (or maybe just this can?). Somewhat in the realm of the style, but severely flawed. 3/10

TOTAL SCORE: 24/50
