A return to being a darker BSA. Nicely spiced and also quite zesty from the yeast. Also sweet and fruity, dark pitted fruits. Dry, sweet finish. Fizzy but full bodied, warming. No alcohol on the nose, a little on the palate. Turtle Doves still my favorite, but this was nice."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750, capped. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a loose off-white head. Big heavy malty dark brown sugar nose with sharp acidic berry notes...not such a good combination. Way too malty. Sticky thick mid palate with flabby carb. Heavy malt sugars with an imbalanced counterpoint of acidic bitter berry notes. A bit schizophrenic.
