3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium offwhite shiny head. Amber body. Bready fruity floral aroma with perfumy butterscotch, cinnamon, and cardamom notes. Dry-sweet cardamom and cinnamon taste with bready cocos notes. Dry roasty vanilla aftertaste. A very odd beer, primarily because of the spices. Quite nice, though. (0.5l bottle as a gift from a blog reader.)
