3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, courtesy of Cunningham. A beer forming a huge, dense, off-white head leaving lacings. Quite clear body, dark amber in color. The aroma has a distinct scent of clothes softener, along with dried fruits and some alcohol and yeast. White sugar hints both in aroma and flavor. Some bitterness towards the end. The alcohol is well hidden, leaving little warmth too. Some bitterness in the finish. Well, in my book this is too perfumed. It’s not bad, just too perfumed. 131026
