3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Small off white creamy bubbly half open lacing on top of an almost black beer with a brown edge. Smell poo, mint, ash, liquor, liquorice, coal. Taste green grass, old liquorice, mint, light roasted malts, herbs, some hops, mint branches and some light light oak. Grassy roasted hoppy mint ish aftertaste. Low carbo, soft light watery texture, medium to full body and a light creamy ish texture. Looks like this beer fell into a barrel with mint. Damn! Guess I tasted a bad bottled version...
