3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home split with Sarah. Dark mahogany brown coloured pour with reddy hues and a lasting light tan head. Aroma is sweet woody caramel, vanilla, with dark choc and woody roast with a hint of smoke. Flavour is composed of dark malts, robust roast and dark choc bitterness, little chalky mineral, charcoal. Palate is medium bodies, with spritzy carbonation, chalky water profile. Good beer but lacks a bit of depth.
