teorn88 (3031) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Backlog rating. Bottle in London. It pours a deep amber-brown color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is earthy and malty with notes of pines needles, dried leaves and cut grass. Taste is malty with some caramel, earthy notes and piney hops and resin. Quite full bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, a good take on the style
