2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It pours an amber colored body under a small, off-white head. The aroma has a touch of caramel, with some fruityness and sugary maltyness. A bit dull in the mouth, smooth and medium bodied. The flavor has caramel, fruityness and a little bitterness. Some bitterness and fruityness in the end. Overall, rather boring, especially considering it’s a beer for the dark months. 120217

Bottle, 5.4%. Weak aroma. Clear copper colour. Small white head. Good caramel flavour, but a little watery, actually. Could be more flavourful for a seasonal, I guess.
