3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle (SOPP2012, Turku)
Dark chocolate brown witha big creamy head. Aroma is fresh husky grains, but veering towards teh grungy side of eco. Grainy and a lilttle watery. A touch on the sour mash side. Simple a little dry and drying. Better on a summer day, and this is too thin whilst I’m standing here shivering. However, it’s a very well crafted beer, with no real flaws.
