2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden color with almost no carbonation or head. A really spicy nose to this. A chili pepper aroma, perhaps? Or maybe it’s just the booze and smoked malt. Anyway, a touch of caramel and sugar in there, too. The flavor is really weird and kind of green, almost like bell pepper. Booze and sweet sugar are there, maybe some licorice notes. Not sure what the point of this was.
