3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at Il Vicino Brewery Canteen during ABQ beer week. Dark red in color with spare white head. Very little lacing throughout the pint. A little bit murky. Aroma is mostly malty, with some molasses and caramel, also a bit of hoppiness in the nose as well. Full bodied with slick moutfhfeel and soft carbonation. Flavor is quite complex, starts off malty and sweet but finishes with bitterness. Finishes quickly with little aftertaste on the palate. Kudos to the brewers for balancing this beer so well; at 120 IBU and 8% alcohol they managed to make this an enjoyable beer and not overwhelming at all. Quite good!
