3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the bottle @Borefts fest 2012.
Pours hazy dark color w no head, but it might be because the bottle was opened for a while.
Aroma is very intense, mostly those silky oatmeal notes, hints of roasted barley as well.
Taste is strange mix of usual oatmeal stouts with some strange interesting notes entwined.
Aftertaste is a punch of bitterness and hot spicies!
