2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep amber/light brown colour. A bit of ruby highlights. The aroma is nutty and quite malty. A lot of toast and sweet chewy maltiness. Quite peppery and alcoholic to me, especially as it starts to warm. Strange sticky sweetness as well. Meh, it doesn’t really do it for me.
