3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really enjoyed this strong ale from Finch- had a pour of this at Leopold, a gastropub in Chicago’s West Town. Lovely aroma with a strong rye smell, a lovely balance of hops on the finish. A little sour, a bit bitter, but all perfectly balanced and tasty.

Draught @Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Pours dark reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of malts, caramel, toffee, berries and hints of sourness.
