2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours deep ruby-brown with a small off-white head. The nose is candy cane, caramel, wood, spice and earth. The taste is wood, earth, spice, candy, cola, leather, orange peel, tinned peach, plum, prune and raisin, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a bit thin for the style and fairly unexciting.
