3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 12/04/13. Nose faint milk chocolate and light dark malt, there’s some almond milk and mildly acrid amber ale, lights hops. Pours is a deep, light-sucking brown-amber with a rather ephemeral beige head. Light body hovers around watery, has some malt though, lightly sweet with no real bitterness, but light citric and prickling hops and mild chocolate way in the background. Faint nuts, as well -- this is a watered down trail mix brown, but a clean and very drinkable one. Touch of stale urine/funk and alcohol seemingly over 5% (though not extreme) are enough to bring it down a notch.
