tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Listed ABV is 4.5% now. Deep brown & burnt copper color with reasonable clarity. Capped with a dark-beige, fine bubbled head, moderate lacing left behind. Aroma is all malt with strong notes of caramel, cocoa powder, walnuts, wood, & a small touch of toasted grain. Relatively robust given the ABV. However the flavor is a little more bland; feels slightly watery. Caramel, wood, toasted nuts, a hint of grassy hops & something that almost has a cardboard flavor... Doesn’t seem like oxidation, just kind of cardboardy? Not terribly offensive, but certainly not optimal. Finishing light bitter & largely nutty. Thin body, easy to drink. finol (3359) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
