  • Pours a dark amber brown color with a off white half inch head. Head has low retention as it dissipates quickly leaving a thin layer of foam on top clinging to the sides of the glass.

    Aroma is mild. A bit of sweet malts and caramel with a slight hint of dark fruit, maybe raisin.

    Taste is generally mild as well. I am getting a sweet malt with a bit of roasted nut. Has a slight bitterness with a sweet sticky mouth feel.

    Medium body with medium carbonation. Has a coarse texture.

    I am not overly impressed with the beer. Not enough complexity to hold my interest. It tastes fine, but I am getting bored with it. I am wondering if I am drinking an old beer. I might try this one again some time to see if I have the same experience.
