3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
DWS; Pours dark brown to black. Aroma is to much whiskey and oaky for my liking. Dark fruits and vanilla suits me better, not to mention roasted malt and plums, brunes. Coffe and chocolate as it warms, in loads. Taste is sweet fruity and moderate bitter, absolutely lasting. Body is full, texture is creamy, carbonation is flat to soft. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
