3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
There is a nice and lasting head on this dark brown beer. The flavour has notes of malt, hops, plum and spice. The mouthfeel is rather oily and the alcohol gives a warm feeling. The flavour is sweet with notes of port wine, candy sugar, dark fruits and alcohol. The sweetness is rather heavy in the finish. It’s the best of the three Cinay’s I have tasted.
