3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - pours deep red with a fizzy brown head that fairly quickly fizzles away to nothing. Aroma of liquorice, coffee, roast malt and cocoa with some hints of banana and vanilla. Taste of smooth coffee with roast malt and a light, earthy bitter finish. Silky smooth body with high carbonation. The bottle made it sound like this was going to be great! But then it was just okay, so that was disappointing.
