3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Dark opaque brown with a beige head. Yeasty, brown sugar, molasses and pear aroma. The flavor is sweet and yeasty, with brown sugar, bubble-gum, and clove spiciness. Thick and sticky body. Overall just on the sweet, sticky, yeasty side. Drinkable, but could use better attenuation.
