3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
ZBF 2008: lightly hazy dark amber with a small off-white head. An odd but deep and full malt character. Dark bread and light sourdough (not sourdough bread but the dough itself). Light but deep running simple spice possibly caraway seed. On top is Brazil nuts and fried dates. Flavor of that deep spice from the aroma. Spicy malt character almost rye. Dried leaves and dark fruit compot with figs. Ends with some raw grain and a dash of tin. Somewhat creamy feeling but ends dry enough.
