3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours blackish brown with a small frothy blackish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is malty, slightly fruity and tiny funky with biscuits, burnt cereal, roasted malts, tropical fruits, grapefruit juice, hay, pine, burnt wood and barnyard. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, fruity and funky with roasted malts, burnt wood, biscuits, grapefruit juice, soil, leather, barnyard, ripe tropical fruits, orange zest, lemon zest and dark roast coffee. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter and slightly fruity with roasted malts, soil, barnyard, grapefruit rinds, orange zest, unripe tropical fruits, leather, coffee and barnyard. Lingering brett infection since I don’t think the funkiness is intentional. Works but most likely not what it’s supposed to be...
