3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2010 7oz bottle
A - Pours a murky brown with very little head.
S - Big aroma of brown bread crust, some brown sugar, doughy yeast, rich caramel malt, moist raisin bread.
T - A whisper of citrus bitterness upfront with waves of bready malt behind it. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar, raisins. Flavors seem to be thinned out. Alcohol comes through more on the finish.
M - Heavy upfront but then it thins out on the backend. Low carbonation.
I wish the flavor would have been as good as the nose. Flavor was thinner than I expected. Overall a pretty good sipper.
