3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured up on tap at the CCB tasting room with clear amber body and copper hues as well as a thin white head. The aroma offers up dark fruity esters, some earthiness and roasted malts. The taste is a bit bright with hints of yeasty spice and dark fruity esters rolling into roasted malts, chocolate malts and a nice sense of earthiness. This comes together very well and with a refreshing quality too.

You could have slapped a Brewdog label on this and I wouldn’t have questioned it. Not a fan of this, wispy, better left outside of my mouth.
