4.5/5 rDev +9.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Presentation: 12oz brown with a drink before date clearly marked.
Appearance: Crystal clear reddish amber in colour with a well retaining off white lace that holds its own all the way down.
Smell: A bit of toffee, a bit of toasted grain and a touch of sweetness.
Taste: Full rich and smooth with quite a chewy malt mouth feel. Very malty on the palate with toasted and caramel all over, just enough hops to balance and a dose of spicy/herbal hop flavour to add a complexity. The toasted grain seems to go on for a while into the dry finish which is reminiscent of toasted whole grain bread.
Notes: Indeed a awesome brew ... high quality and oh so flavourful, very hard to find anything wrong with this beer. A definite BeerAdvocate pick!
Serving type: bottle
