3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at ebp. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Caramel, gingerbread, and fallen leaves on the nose. Creamy medium body--amazingly dimensional presence. Toast, nuts, caramel, gingerbread and dry leaves on the mid palate. Long toasty dry finish. Great forward power to the flavor profile, but beautifully harmonious and approachable. This one’s in that sweet spot.
