2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a brown colour with a small head. Aroma of peat, leather and burnt rubber. Flavour of roasted malts, loads and loads of residual sugar, burnt rubber and some wooden notes. Medium bodied and thin mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Horrible balance. Yeah, peat is there but everything else is missing.
