3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m not overly impressed with this beer. The scent is thin and weak. Hardly so you know something. The taste is better me, but just okay. The aftertaste is left for a little while but not for long. That said, I was not impressed with this beer. I have a Vintage 2011 in stock, which I hope is better.

750 ml bottle. Aroma consists of chocolate, dark fruit (plums, raisins), soy sauce, alcohol. Pours opaque muddy brown with a large tan head with excellent retention; leaves lace. Taste is sweet and savory, sour and meaty, oxidation, soy sauce. Heavy body crushing my tongue, velvety mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea right now, but a quality product.
