3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, pours copper dark-amber with a gorgeous white head that persist in a thin layer for a long time. Aroma of dried apricots, honey, caramel, some metal notes. Thick slightly oily body. Taste starts caramel sweet with some hints of toffee and morphs into a slightly metallic hop bitterness with hot alcohol flavors. A nice strong ale but would have been much greater if not for the evident alcohol in the aftertaste.
