3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at 508. Pours a deep ruby brown with a medium sized white to beige head. Sweet roast, soft cocoa, fruity malt and a touch of paper and some light acid. Sweet fruit, oxidization, gentle tart acid, musk and faint funk. Gets a bit heavy on the musty paper, nice mouthfeel but the flavors seem a bit off.
