3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours coppery brown with a thin white head and somewhat cloudy body. Has big caramel and toffee notes in the nose with no apparent hops. Tasting notes are big carmelly grapefruit with a hint of chocolate and big sweet finish. Carbonation medium and a full bodied mouthfeel. Overall a nice example of the style with emphasis on the fruity end . Big and somewhat cloying, not a session beer.
