3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very malty and rich with sweet caramel, chocolate, a hint of burnt grain, and resin hops. The appearance is deep amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma but soapy bitter. The palate is smooth with a dry finish. Overall a good beer but a tad to astringent and dry for the style.
