3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out with a thick, fluffy beige head, which fades quickly. Aroma is fairly light, but taste comes on much richer, and finishes even better. Elements of wood, molasses, chocolate and burnt toast. Body thin, but this is all about the flavor.
