3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from bevmo. Pours a chestnut brown color with a medium foamy khaki head that slowly fades to a fine film. The aroma is robust with roasted malts, brown sugar, and caramel. The taste is similar to the nose, lots of brown sugar, along-side caramelized malts and some light hopping for counterbalance. The palate is full and creamy with medium fizzy carbonation. The finish is long and dry. Overall: A very nice little brown.
