3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ High Hops. Pours a fairly clear, dark reddish orange appearance with a light brown head. Sweet candy sugar, caramel, cherry fruity, light toffee aroma. A bit strong, dark candy sugar, fairly dark fruity, plum flavor that dries out a fair amount on the finish. Pretty good but I’m not sure it’s an improvement on The Noble One.
