3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy copper with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma is dark fruit with a hint of phenol. Med body. Phenolics are a bit stronger in the flavor, and the dark fruit is good with that. Heat detectable but not bothersome. Finishes just on the dry side. I keep thinking brown sugar is present, but it could be the dark fruit. Pretty tasty ale.
