3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5th October 2012
Almost opaque dark brown beer, good pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate with a crisper trailing edge. Mild minerals. Smooth and mildly creamy dark malt. Nice plummy and generic fruits. Back end is an interesting mixture of pine hops and black pepper. Finishes neutral. Very good inventive beer, unusual but in good balance.
