3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Poured ruby brown with a medium-sized, dense, tan head. Aroma and flavor were intensely malty, caramel, molasses, some roasted malt, lots of fruit (raisin, prune, some cherry), very light banana and yeast. Very sweet and rather unbalanced. Very nice in a small glass as a dessert drink but more than that and it really needs some more bitterness for balance. Thick mouthfeel.
