3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle split @ CBC Clerkenwell. Cheers to Leighton for holding onto this one. The pour’s amber with a small head. Somewhat musty, woody on the nose. Baked bread, nuts. A bit of bear claw donut. Sweet orchard fruit flavors. Tangy cherry and pear. Rich caramel malt. Full, but not overly sweet or hot. Overall, better than I was afraid this commemorative beer might be. Respectable stuff from Durham.
