3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (as #213) at ChrisO. It pours deep red-brown, with a thin off-white rim. The nose is freshly baked brown bread, earthy, malt backbone and a touch of raisin. The taste is sweet caramel, earth, medicinal aspect, underlying spice, cardboard, white sugar, hint of dark fruit and some alcohol warmth. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Rather odd. Doesn’t quite work for me.
