3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2017 Bottle at home, not sure where I picked this up. It pours dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma is rich, bitter - sweet, toffee, rather smokey, meaty, bacon frazzles, wood and cherry cola. The taste is dry, quite sweet upfront, cola, candi sugar, toffee, smoked malts, wood, applewood smoked cheddar, spice, earth, orchard fruits, raisin, dried berry and some alcohol warmth with a drying and woody finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Rather interesting, but a bit too drying after a while.
