3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice burgundy-brown color. Quite a bit of texture. Toasty, nutty and chewy, with hints of bread crust. Bitterness was mild yet balancing. Decent-tasting, easy-to-drink brown. Probably better than average.

Clear brown pour with a thin head. Smells of brown sugar, cinnamon, hazelnut. Taste is surprisingly bitter on the finish. Coats well and feels nice, although a little thin in the middle.
