3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 Bottle. Pours very dark with minimal head. Smell is old ale, molasses, some indistinct fruits, maybe cherry, and yeast. But the biggest smell Iím getting is bubblegum. Medium bodied, a little frothy. Taste is bubblegum, a bit sharp, metallic. Taste is not as complex as the smell. This is an interesting beer, but itís not my cup of tea.
