Bottle. Roasted aroma, slightly vinous. Slightly sweet and spicy. Seemingly clear dark brown colour. Big stable creamy tan head. The flavour is roasted with a good spicy hoppiness. Tastes like a macro beer, but a good one, very well-balanced and quite flavourful.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle from the winter pack. This one was one of the best 6 I tried...but still not amazing. Deep amber pour. Very light tan head. Aroma of yeast, bread, nuts, honey and caramel. Flavor is a weird mix of malt, honey , bread and fruit. I didnt care for the overall flavor profile of this. Again a lackluster nut brown.
