Tap at Rattle N Hum. Hazy amber brown pour with light ruby tinted highlights. The nose has a lot of light cocoa and a kiss of soft coffee as well. A touch of soft earthy bitterness and an almost odd sort of herbal flavour that isnít appealing at all. Very assertive bitterness that becomes distracting in hereÖ not really astringent but it does remind me of a wormwood-like bitterness. The coffee and cocoa come out on the finish. I canít really say Iím a huge fan of this one. Actually kind of awful.
