3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep russet with very little head and no retention. Aromas of cocoa and burnt sugar dominate, traces of spicy hops in the background. Flavourwise, a nice toastiness, layered with nuttiness and dark caramel. Medium bodied, perhaps a bit on the thin side, but a decent beer.
