3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011 bottle served in a pint glass (from notes)..
Pours a crystal clear red-brown with a medium tan head. Head reduces quickly to a lasting top coat.
Attractive malty aroma with some light, unusual spicing. Likewise, the flavor has a solid malt backbone, with some pleasant, unobtrusive spicing. High ABV is a bit more obvious than ideal in mouth but not in the aroma.
M - good carbonation; medium body; less smooth than desired.
