3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle @ PBF IX.
Pours murky orange color with a small lasting head. A bit weird cardboardy notes on the aroma, otherwise nice caramel and ripe fruits with sweetish malts, some yeast also. Sweet malts and toffee on the flavor, quite strong alcohol burn and some spicy yeasty notes on the aftertaste. Feels quite old but it has still quite a lot of flavor. No freshness info so not sure about the age though.
