4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle #205 of 1200. Pours murky mahogany into the glass, with a light eggshell head that leaves soap lacing. A cherry malted nose ensues. Flavors of cherry sours, caramel and yeasty esters and finishes cherry sour. A lively mouthfeel and complex sour palate makes for a superbly tasty, ABV-nearly-non-existent, complex, almost Flemish take on this Impy Brown. Super brew!!!
