3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark red brown colour, small off-white head. Lovely nose, aroma of caramel, malts, roasted malts, toast, light spicy, light nuts, some sweetness. Light sweet flavour, rather thin body. Too thin for my liking. Finish light spicy, somewhat fruity. Not bad, but a bit lagging behind in flavour and body.
