4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Firm cola brown body, shade of haze but beige fizzy head. Earthy fresh wet compost nose with spriteful brown sugar tinge. Oaky but smooth carbonation combo slips a silly ABV away easily. Meaty malt in the middle without hanging around too long, complex without being overpowering. Sweetness is constant but allows a little room for a crystal tang linger. Teeth gummingly gud liiiike.

Bottle. Tootsie roll brown color, excellent light foam that dissipates slightly but leaves a nice layer of bubbles resting on top. Smooth milk chocolate and fudge aroma, some hazelnut. Taste focuses on the hazelnut, some molasses/chocolate-like note, and alcohol. A hint of char too. Excellent brew.
