3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 fl oz bottle via my bro, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear copper with a nice light tan foam.
Aroma: Strong caramel and sweet, sugary malts, grapefruit and marmalade, rye bread crust, fairly citrusy, a little pine/resin, a touch savoury/brothy, quite fruity, some berries, maybe apricot?, nice.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Much more stark than the nose, quite resinous, a bit floral, fairly earthy, not nearly as friendly, dry, earthy malts, a little burnt sugar, quite different from nose; dry with strong bitterness and a stark, earthy, stern finish.
Holy bipolar brew, Batman!
