3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Cuso. Aroma fruity, caramel. Good, but not by far wonderful. Hazy reddish amber colour. Taste has really strong maltiness initially. Alcohol is strong with this one, on the edge. Too much caramel, sugary. While this is certainly enjoyable in small quantities, it is no great piece to be pondering about. Lacking complexity. Otherwise good.

Bottle shared by cuso, many thanks! Strong malty alcohol pumped ale! A sipper. Full body. Very bitter finish. Aroma is malty, not nose piercing, but ok. Taste is malty, some dark fruits, bitter finish. Overall a good beer, strong, bitter. Reminds me of many bitter ales, but a lot stronger.
