3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Very dark brown, hints of ruby with a lasting, creamy tan head. Moderate lacing. Aroma of toasted caramel malts, mild grape sweetness, bread, yeast, a touch of roasted grains. Flavor exhibits a mild vinous character; grape skins & mild alcohol. Notes of toasted bread, dry caramel malt, cocoa dust, a bit of unsweet chocolate in the finish. Notable hopping with a leafy & ashy character, slight bitterness. Faint clove in the aftertaste, Belgian yeast esters coming alive. Not bad for what it is, blurring the style guidelines a bit.

It has a dark reddish brown color and light brown head that disparates quickly. I smell malt, coffee, vanilla, caramel and some dark bread. I taste all the same, with a clean finish.
