3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle pours with a clear deep amber body that supports a tan head of foam. The modest aroma offers up a bit of roasted malts and then lesser degrees of caramel and mineral and chocolate malts. The taste begins with a slight roasted malt note mixing with a mineral sensation and heading quickly into a subtle vague hop bitterness that grows to midway. It then picks up light notes of prunes and figs dusted in brown sugar as a ribbon of roasted malts softly surge forward. The hops are hard to pin down and describe but they hang with the flavor right into the finish. Nice stuff indeed.
