4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma - heavy malt, faint caramel and toffee notes;
Appearance - deep copper, thick fluffy head, very nice lacing;
Taste - caramel malt front, mildly bitter hop back, finish is malty yet balanced;
Palate - extremely smooth, great body;
Overall - in a style typically filled with poorly built beers, this brew proves to be a fine model for others.
