3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013-08-16. Very dark brown body headless. 3+ Aroma has an odd earthy malt character that I do not entirely care for. 6+ Flavour is similar, with a dry dusty earthy malt. 6+ Average bodied palate. Just okay. Not sure if it is a bit old/off or if this is what was intended, but I was not enamoured of it.. Bottle at Campground Brewdown.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle: Pours a mostly opaque dark brown with a creamy froth of effervescent tan head. Has a lightly toasted biscuity malty nose with some chocolate notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and bubbly carbonation with some light fruity notes and roasted malt bitterness before a drier slightly citurs hoppy finish. A little over-carbonated, but has good flavor and mild complexity.
