3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My bottle is like BOBANDDOUG’s. Bottled 10/08/07. I’ll put one away. Aroma of rather darkly roasted malt. Some hop as the glass approaches the lips. Reddish tinged amber color with a beige head that is quite refined (bottle conditioned!). Medium bodied with refined carbonation. The flavor is roasted malt with some subtle floral hop and some resin. The finish is fairly dry, with some harsh roast notes, and some floral hop bitter lightly building. A dark winter brew, but not overly Xmased. Could be a year round dark ale.
