3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
1st December 2012
Opaque dark brown beer, no head. Palate is slightly dry, no carbonation. Sweet rich malts and then a little candy fruits underneath. Mild wood with a trace of vanilla. Touch of aniseed, finishes neutral with a trace of marmite. Not bad but some carbonation would have been good!
