3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy broken off-white head. The aroma is of yeast, a little raisin and some smoke too. The flavour is medium sweet light bitter with a spicy hop smokey palate and a long bitter finish. One of the best beers I’ve had from Butchers Tears. Nicely balanced and very drinkable.
