3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a red-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is toffee with a little bit of tartness. I am not sure if the tartness is supposed to be in the beer or not, since I drank a sour beer prior to this. The flavor is toffee, dark fruit and Belgian yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
