3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
aroma is nice, dark fruit.. looks great, nice yellow lasting head, flavor is dark fruit and spices, raisins (or something), i don’t like these spices, but it’s well done. also a bit "old beer" tones to the flavor., palate is quite good, overall a good beer that just doesn’t taste what i like, it’s too sweet, and too "rasin/dark fruit" for my taste. The alc. is totally hidden, you’d not expect it to be this strong. If i had liked the spices i would have rated it higher still
