3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft sample at brewery-Pours a light brown with no head and an aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and a touch of ginger. Taste of malt, ginger ,caramel, toffee, and a bit of smoke. This medium to full bodied brew is very well balanced and brings out a bunch of tastes. Not a fan of this style but this one rocks.
