Appearance: clear amber-brown with one finger of creamy beige head diminishing gradually to a thick persistent cap, patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: sweet malt, chocolate, dried dark fruit, hint of oranges. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium slightly slick body, moderate carbonation, medium sweetish lightly warming finish. (4/5)

I’m usually all about the hops, and this… well.. isn’t. At all. But, as an ode to malt, this is extremely well done. I quite enjoyed it. (16/20)
