3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
19 nov 2013, tap at brewers art. Dark brown. Nose is dark toast, orange, and spices. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Finer comes out big time and lots of bitter orange peel in the finish. Reminds me of 90% chocolate and orange rind. Fun for a winter ale. Don't know how much I could drink though. It is quite bold.
