2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Big rich malt base, toasty caramel, musty, and tart fruity. Slightly dusty taste in the finsh along with a good hop dose. Pours dark amber, not sure about its Golden status. Tastes a bit old to me, light oxidation and thinner then it should be on the palate.
