3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, amber beer topped by a small, off-white head. It’s quite oxidized on the nose, sherry hints, tending towards some high quality Polish mead, but without the honey. Toffee and some dried fruits too, and a faint hint of coffee. Bitter and oxidized flavor with some green pine cones, nuts and toffee. Medium to full body, quite dry. Lasting finish. I probably shouldn’t award a three score for this one, but I sort of like it. Think sharing a bottle with a friend would do it though. 131116

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet aroma, almost candy sweet, caramel, fruit, cooked vegetables. The appearance is lightly hazy amber, of-white head. The flavor is cooked vegetables, sweet caramel, brown sugar. The finish is weak, no hops, light sweetness. Medium in body, a tad thin actually, a bit watery. Not bad though.
