3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A huge old-world style throw-down, with toasted, chocolaty, earthy moldy, herbal/woody, mellow booze stuff you get from English funked out yeast (this ain’t no WLP002, or maybe it is but he’s been using it for generations) and British Pale Malt (guessing Maris Otter). Booyah! I’ll drink it all day.

On cask at the brewery. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a medium, off-white head and great cascading bubbles and thick lacing. The aroma is dominated by dark chocolate, with some licorice, pumpernickel, and rye. Sweet and malty, with just a bit of roasted bitterness that balances nicely. Light to medium body, creamy, velvety, and malty. This is an easy and flavorful mild. Smooth, balanced flavor, and a luxurious mouthfeel. KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 2, 2016

(En fût à la brasserie): Des céréales collantes et grillées infusées d’un nuage de feuilles de tabac. La sécheresse est grande comme la pugnacité de sa buvabilité.
