3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft… Pours clear and “shiny new penny” copper with a small, white head. The malty, lightly vinous nose presents caramel, crusted port and dark raisins. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and laid-back carbonation. The flavor furnishes caramel, toasted nuttiness and medium-roast barley – even at room temperature, the sweetness is well harnessed. Finishes crisp, lightly vinous, mildly sweet and a touch thin.
