3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pourd a fairyl dark but clear brown. Aroma of my bottel was lightly skunky thanks to the clear bottle. Not bad enough to really be a problem. Caramel flavors dominate with some roasted flavors in the background. A slightly better finish. A well balanced ale, and not offensive.
