3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep golden color. Malt and cookie-caramel aroma. Full bodied, very malty flavor, again with cookie-caramel. The malty sweetness totally hides any alcohol. Meaty, almost sticky, but pleasant.

Bottled. Dark golden with an offwhite head. No lacings, probably due to the bar I visited. Sweet, malty aroma. Sweet and malty flavor with medium bitter finish. Ok palate. Should probably re-rate this one later on. It was late in the evening in a smoke-filled bar. (051208)
