3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle shared by Sebilinz at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Black body, with a big, creamy, brown head.
Aroma with lots of dried fruits, coffee, alcohol.
Tastes of roasty coffee, dried fruits, lots of sweet malts, some smoke, fruity hops.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes roasty, a bit smokey, with coffee, dried fruits, subtle hops.
Very nice. The nose isn’t that special in my opinion, but the taste is enjoyably full malty, without forgetting about the hops. Overall not the best American Strong I’ve had, but one I would gladly drink again.
