3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a foamy beige head. Aroma is mixed chocolate and rye spice notes. Med body, but then it thins quite rapidly. It’s ok. But not very bitter. It is dry, and arguably hoppy. Somehow it’s just not super.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Clear, deep-red copper with moderate off-white head. I can smell mildly spicy rye notes in the aroma. Body is a little on the weak side. Flavor isn’t bad, but somewhat one-dimensional. Something in the finish I don’t care much for although I honestly can’t place it. Not terrible, but I won’t be getting it again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample from bottle at Vectura tasting. Brown colour. Some caramel and toffee in the aroma, not unpleasant. The flavour has also caramel and toffee, but also some moderately roasty notes. A moderate but sharpish and slightly metallic bitterness in the finish. Drinkable (if for free), but not something I’d spend money on.
