3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Ruby color with a thick beige head. Spice & roasted caramel for aroma. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Rich caramel with citrus and spice for flavor. It is suggestive of a quad with regard to malt or maybe there’s some chocolate. Finish is astringent more than anything else. I’d drink it frequently, were it available.
