3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle… Clear caramel-colored ale with no head. The nose is a mélange of caramel, Cognac and a hint of beef stock. Full-bodied and velvety with lame carbonation. The malty, vinous flavor consists mainly of caramel, toffee and Cognac. Nourishing, lightly sweet, praline finish. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!
