2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle in Edinburgh.
Dark Brown; opaque; frothy head.
Odd petroleum-type aromatic ruins the nose. The flavor is much better but still has an unusual, hard to describe, off taste that seems akin to burnt grain.
Medium carbonation and body.
