look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2
Dark ruby in colour with a large, brown head with a few bubble holes dotted around the sides & at the top. The head is quite foamy & lasts well.
Smells of a mixture of dried summer fruits & raisins along with roasted malts & hints of coffee.
Hints of dried fruit to begin with although the dominate taste is the strong coffee flavour that definitely sticks around as an aftertaste. There is also roasted barely in there as well. The flavours are a little strong for my taste however.
Rather smooth with light carbonation, I would say this one was medium bodied although slightly watery. Not what I expected at all.
The 8% abv is well hidden in both the smell & taste although the overwhelming coffee taste was too much for me to enjoy this one.
