4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into thistle glass a red tinged brown with nice off white head and lace. Clear a little slick and med bodied. Aroma malty, caramel a little nutty. It had some of that holiday cake in the taste along with the malt, caramel, a little alcohol but not much. I love the malty taste here as I am wearing from the overload of IPA’s that seem to flow non stop. Very much enjoyed this one.
