MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2007
3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Caramel maltiness flows generously throughout, building a silky body which is nearly balanced out by savoury wooden hop bitterness. This is a solid strong ale for the malt lover.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thin veil of foam seeps into the clear red copper.
-The caramel maltiness is uninterrupted until the very end.
-Bready pale malts are amazingly able to peek through, fitting with the straightforward crystal malts.
-Alcohol is never felt, and all that caramel never gets cloying, which is highly appreciated.
