2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A deep red beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted with light notes of chocolate. The flavor is sticky sweet with some notes of vegetables, and with an acidic end. I don’t know what went wrong here - bad bottle? I use to like the style, but this was just not me.
