3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Clear, brilliant amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The sweet, fruity aroma offers freshly baked black bread, biscuit, tropical fruits and a subdued note of medium sherry. I’m unable to pull any smoked malt out of this. Medium to full-bodied and fatty with tingly carbonation. The flavor leans sweet, but there’s some nice bitterness that keeps the sugar under control. Bittersweet, malty finish with a kiss of honey.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep amber pour with a thick sticky white head. the nose is a bit sweet and toasty. A touch of chewy toffee. A bit of light breadiness. A little bit of lightly dusty malt on the base. It’s a tad too sweet despite the dark malt base. A bit of crystal malt that I find a bit off. It’s not terrible, but it’s not terribly good either.
