3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Thanks to Justin for the opportunity... Pours a murky mostly non-transparent caramel toffee brown and topped with a thin silky frothy creamy white head... Deep rooted dark and dried fruit, mostly sweet with underlying vanilla and rich toffee. Fruity with moderate sweetness overall... Flavors are more of the same with dark fruit, pear, vanilla, and woody rich toffee notes. Body somewhat thin with adequate carbonation.
