3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Deep clear burnt-brick red with a fairly large and long-lasting tan thick cap of tightly foamy head. Aroma is wet limestone, medium roast coffee bean malt and alcohol. Taste is ... terrific; only slightly mineral, it’s mostly nutty coffee and dried herb bitterness with alcohol and some slight sharp lactic character. Average body, a bit astringent, nicely carbonated, and a medium roasty/dry bitter finish, interesting mineral aftertaste. Very nice.

Bottle: Poured a light clear brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coffee is pretty intense with loads of floral notes without any astringency. Taste is also dominated by floral coffee notes with light caramelized notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very good offering with great balance and no astringency.
