Review by Z.P.
Appearance – Caramel brown.
Smell – Hoppy, straight up hops.
Taste – Sweet and Malty at the start. The middle is a little rusty almost metallic, but it isn’t unpleasant. The end is a lingering hop flavor.
Mouthfeel – Heavy.
Drinkability – It tastes a bit heavy but it is good. The alcohol shines through at the middle.
Closing Notes – It is pretty good, it can apparently be cellared I would like to try that if I can get my hands on another bottle at some point.
