3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, 2008 bottling. Poured healthy golden with an eggshell head on top.. looked nice. The aroma was strong with pale and caramel malts leading.. spicy peppery esters joined an intricate display of floral notes around.. singed the nostrils a bit. The flavor opened with spicy pepper and floral notes.. sweet middle of aged pale malts and medium-skinned fruits.. finished warm with more spices and great balance. Heavier-bodied with lots of carbonation on the palate.. spicy and engaging.. very good brew!
