3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. I got this a while back and it has been sitting in the fridge waiting its time in line. Pours a lovely medium brown with reddish highlights and a nice fizzy tan head. Aromas are earthy, roasty, leafy, and toffee-like. Flavor is a bit thin, but a nice mix of dark caramel, earthy roasted malts and a slightly leafy bitterness. Very solid for a nice brown.
