3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Loved it, pours a very deep copper, has a slight earthy, spicy almost musty quality to it on the nose & all the way through the palate. When I first tasted it I wasn’t sure but after a few gulps I grew to love it. The flavours are full & almost rustic, the balance is great & the finish long. It has that lovely chewy quality that is normally reserved for much stronger beers.
