3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet caramel malt aroma with hints of dried dark fruits. Pours a clear dark brown that just barely lets light though with a finger of off white head.
Tasty crisp beer with minimal sweetness and heavy roast malt and finishes with a lingering hop bitternesss. Medium body and lively on the tongue.
Overall, a good beer that’s perfect for cold nights. I seem to recall really liking the Fall ’13 version of this beer. This years batch (F’13) seems a bit different.
