Very distinct malty flavor, but with nice complexity. However, if you are someone who does not like a lot of malt in your beer, this isn’t for you.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. An almost clear one, brown in color and with a small, dense, beige head. Toffeeish and bready aroma with some fruity hints. The flavor is pretty much the same, quite sweetish. Fruity and bready, with toffee hints. Dry and quite pleasantly carbonated. Lasting finish with a pleasant alcohol warmth. A quite pleasant one, but too one dimensional. 130216
