3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice ruby color with a medium tan head that dissipated quickly. Aroma has dark fruit...black cherry...and earthy hop notes. Flavor follows suit and steps up the earthy hops a bit...some toasted malts...nice job of adding that belgian fruitiness without sweetness...really tasty. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is dry and earthy/leathery/roasty.
