3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful initial pour leading towards a large toasty, earthy and dark fruit character. You do indeed get lager yeast esters and brash alcohol. This was bottled 12/18/12 and does have a touch of that "aged" tone which works nicely here.
