3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet fruits, especially apple and pear, raisin, sweet malt. Flavor features more roasted, sweet malt with less fruity notes. Palate is medium, it’s robust but at the same time feels weak for the style. This beer is on the right track but could be better.
