3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 Pours dark brown with quickly dissipating off white head. Aroma is nothing particular. Hops don’t even make a presence other than to balance out the maltiness. Rustic brown does this justice as a type. Medium bodied and light flavors of raisins.
