3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle At Barely Legal Tasting Room . Note ; Previously rated mistakingly under the blonde variation . Moved rating 1 month after , when I finally realized this .
Pours dark brown , with a bordeaux glow. good yet fast fading white head .
Smell is dark malts, bit sweet , complex, earthy ,
Taste is bit bitter, some sweetness . interesting flavors in the back ( would have liked them more up front ) like dark fruits, hop bitter ( the bitterness that dominates the taste is not really hoppy per se ) an almost chocolaty finish- yet not completely . The taste is a bit comparable to chocolate, but it is different . Maybe one of those descibed ingredients that I dont really know ?
Ok to nice beer . bit ordinary cause the special tastes are way to much hidden in the back .
