3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a very dark, nearly black color with a thin beige/tan head with minimal lacing. Aroma included roasted malts with a light fruity twinge with fall leaves in there too. Taste was complex - roasted malts, sweet potato and pumpkin/spices with a mild hop finish. Palate was fairly decent. Overall, a nice complex tasting fall/winter seasonal brew. A nice sampler for in front toasty fire on a cold night.
