4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Legacy, Vancouver; 9.8% ABV
The color is almost black, with very small head. Mild aroma, caramel, rye bread, sweet. Sweet but not syrupy; the dark caramel dominates the flavor, with notes of chocolate, leather, biscuits, but also with a fruity touch. The alcohol and hop resins create a warming feeling in the final.
Agile, pedestrian. Very nice.
