3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l - #090347, 20111203) The beer poured ruby red and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, dried plum, strawberry and alcohol. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, dried plum, alcohol, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and mildly roasty. This one was too young but still pretty good. The harshess will quite likely disappear with aging.
