4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe in the Ovila chalice. Pours quite dark brown with a fizzy/foamy head that didn’t stay long. Aroma of plummy dark fruit transitioning to some smooth darkly roasted malt. Full bodied. It’s quite fruity - lots of plum. Heat is detectable but not bothersome. Finishes on a slightly bitter roast malt note. Great ale for a chilly winter evening.
