Huge fig and date aroma. Slightly sour grainy taste. Then there’s the nuts too, but they’re quite subtle. It’s a touch acidic, and the graininess is high. There’s however a sweet sticky breakfast-cereal finish, despite the fact that the taste isn’t sweet. Feet firmly planted in the ’fermented wort from grains’ school, which I like. Never felt a dot over 6%, good show!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
No head left. Copper-amber beer. Astringency in the nose, solvent, bitterish. Sweet-sour taste, unbalanced, going into sharpish MF, more acidity and astringency, and thin body. More than probably infected.
