2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown. Smells a bit gamey...taste is blandish, buttery and without any real substance. Just a lot of disappointing.
Earlier Rating: 2/24/2014 Total Score: 3.6
Med brown, bubbly head. Aroma toasty, with light woody hop notes. Taste is like hoppy brown ale, full of toast and c hop marmalade.
