3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is chestnut-mahogany brown with a light brown head that lingers momentarily before fading to a ring. The aroma is full of dark malts, brown sugar, fig, plum and other dark fruits, and a vague buttery sensation. That could be the yeast. The body is medium to full. The taste is over-the-top sweet with a strong malt character and a clean finish. A little more sweet than I prefer but quite drinkable.

Darker copper pour, with a thick and lasting head. Perhaps this is an interesting version of this style. Yeasty, slight woody, lasting bitter finish. Impression is kind of... warm, brown sugary, faintly bitter. Much more going on as it warmed up. Enjoyable but... wanted more going on.
Would I drink again? yes.
Would I order again? maybe.
