Dark red and cloudy, minimal head. Hoppy aroma. Dark and malty flavor with strong mineral undertones. Rather bitter. Finish is short and fizzy. Not overly complex, but tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Cardinal. An unclear, dark amber colored beer with a dense, two-finger sized off-white to light beige head. The aroma has toffee, bread and nut notes, with some dried fruits. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, with the same maltyness known from the aroma dominating. Nuts, caramel and bread crust. Full to medium body, a bit high carbonation level. A quite tasteful one, but it gives me nothing. Too boring, but sort of sessionable. 140627
