3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Pours murky and brown with a small, frothy, khaki head. Decent retention. The bouquet is a malty swirl of caramel, toasted nuts and milk chocolate. Medium to full-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is nutty and a hint chocolaty with a mild component of awkward, lactic acidity. Finishes tangy and sweet. Infected? Bottle supplied by biggsbowler!

750ml bottle in a teku. Pours very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate/darker malts, some light notes of wheat and walnuts, some caramel and toffee notes, and light dough. Flavor doesn’t blend perfectly. Average texture. A pretty good beer.
