3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Two large draughts at the Brewpub during ’Strong Beer Month’ on 5 Feb 2013.
Lovely dark, deep amber body with a full creamy head of white foam.
Malts all the way, toffee, caramel and just general sweet molasses throughout the brew: this was my favourite beer I had in San Fran, during our 4 night stay.
There where some dark berry notes within the maltiness but this is a malt bomb of a beer. Obviously fairly sweet it also packed a good alcoholic kick which suited it nicely. A rich and heavy brew that I took too.
