UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 5/20/2012 - Clear dark golden amber with a rocky, long-lasting head; swirls of lace. This is what good bitters are all about: caramel malt and biscuits burst on the palate, followed by clean floral hops that are just assertive enough to create a solid balance in the finish. A perfect marriage of sweet and bitter, super for a long evening with friends (which is happening at Sergio’s in Louisville tonight). Highly Recommended! 5/4/15 - Each time I return to this I say "I forgot how good this is," or "boy, this is solid stuff." It is the true go-to brew for me. Therefore, my 4.0 is now 5.0.

Aroma: Roasty, buttery, bread, musty, fruity,
Appearance: Clear copper body. Small off-white head. Lacing.
Flavour: Medium-high bitterness, caramel, roasty, bread, medium-high sweetness, fruity,
Palate: Medium body, medium carbonation, creamy,
Overall: Well balanced, but still leaning towards the bitterness. I would happily drink too much of this! :)
500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!
