2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle by 26.10.12. Nose dark toffee and earth, caramel, light hops. Deep amber-brown, dark with a short sudsy beige head. Not really all that sweet or bitter (do we call that balance?), hint of sourness that seems like it might be the winner. A little more fruit in the mouth than nose. Heavy medium-full body, too heavy, and sharp with a crisp fizz. Faint nuts and hops.
