2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Boundary Crossing, Vancouver
Mahogany color, hazy, with small head. Aroma of cheap chocolate and Christmas spices. Good body strength; the flavor of cheap chocolate, vanilla and spices is even stronger; it has a mild minty/herbal touch, and the final bitterness is vegetable, chicory, rather disturbing. Some alcohol warmth.
Not very pleasant.
