3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. can, pours a dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of hops upfront, some bready malts, hints of caramel and dark fruits, and a bit of grapefruit. Flavour is a mellow blend of sweet caramel malts, citrus hops and grapefruit, with some subtle spicy notes thrown in there - the flavour dies on the palate very quickly leaving little aftertaste. Nice subtle flavours, but for 8.5%, this lacks a deep flavour profile. Mildly enjoyable.

Can thanks to Leighton at the Night of Garbage. It pours deep amber with a small yellow-white head. The nose is pine, raisin, date, prune, citrus peel and brown bread. The taste is bitter-sweet, date, prune, fig, caramel, sugary, berry, toast and candy with a sweetish finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smells a bit better than it tastes. Solid stuff nonetheless.
