3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Amber hued caramel, a little dirty, large pillowy sandy head, nice lacing. Soft mealy malts on the nose. Slightly dusty. Soft biscuity malt flavors, not too heavy, decent body and mouthfeel. Nothing exceptional, clean tho. Very slight grains and nuttiness lingers. Seems a darker example of the style, perhaps a little heavier. Decent, but a little boring.   More points if it were a touch sweeter.
