2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ #HPJ-13. Pours a dark amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma is caramel, lightly boozy. Mostly caramel. Taste is much of the same, caramel is strong, a bit boozy. Some pine there as well, but unfortunately the caramel dominates. Not oversweet, but not much of hop flavor here unfortunately. Full and well carbonated.
