3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Farewell to ibrew2or3… Hazy burnt-orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is a malty, vinous marriage of caramel, ethanol and toasted oak with a kiss of Cabernet. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. The flavor is a blend of sweet caramel and bitter, citric, tannic hops. Tilts way bitter. Tannic, raspy, bitter finish that dries out quite a bit. Bottle courtesy of ibrew2or3!
