2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Reddish brown coloured. Murky. Dense off white head. Sweet and fruity aroma in the light end. Flavour is light fruity and gives me some sourish impressions. Light to medium bodied. Ends on a light bitter note. I’m a bit unimpressed. Have to revisit this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Clear dark ale (orange, when held up to the Florida sun) with a huge, frothy, khaki head that diminishes to an eternal, small, tight, creamy cap. The aroma offers a complex mélange of licorice root, sorghum molasses, praline, dark fruits, mint and sarsaparilla. Medium-bodied and creamy with trace carbonation. Sweet, spicy flavor. Dark fruits and caramel abound alongside a suggestion of mocha and a rumor of acidity. Sweet, tangy, and then dry finish.
