3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Don’t know why they made this a new style. It’s so fuckin’ boring. The aroma is malty, brown sugar, coked vegetables. The appearance is dark brown, slight translucence, off white head. The flavor is like the aroma, malty, brown sugar, cooked vegetables. The finish is noble hops, lingering sweetness. Medium in body. OK, nothing great.

Not a big fan of this one. Overly sweet, not enough hop balance. Caramel, toffee, and even some brown sugar. The aroma is malty sweet as well.

Slightly sour smell and taste of roasted malt, caramel and hops. The taste has an unpleasant metallic and bitter tone. Not a particularly good beer!
