3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at HopCat, Grand Rapids. Deep opaque, murky orange-brown body, thin tan head. Toasty, chocolaty nose with musty dark fruits and clove. Lots of chocolate in the body, also clove, grape, and raisins; vinous with a sweet , somewhat tart white wine finish. Reminds me of Bells Hell Hath no Fury, but fruitier and more acidic. Becomes cloying.
