3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (from beergium). Pours dark ruby brown with beige head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is very sweet, caramel candy, malt, slight peanut butter. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, malt, nuts, some fruits. Finish is dry-nutty bitter with some lingering sweetness and slight alcohol burn. Overall: well-made brown ale (maybe bit too boozy), but by the numbers brown ale is very boring (because brown ale is boring style...).
