bhensonb (10929) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours really dark brown with a slight creamy beige head. I really cant find words for the aroma other than treacle. Med minus body. Flavor is pretty much treacle. Theres some balancing bitter, but that cuts the sugar not the flavor. Not even getting a lot of burnt malt. Treacle.
