Served on-tap at Capital City Gastropub (Albany, NY).

A: Plummy amber with a short cap of off-white head and a thin rim of lacing left at the top of the glass.

S: Mild fruity malt aroma with fairly strong whiff of alcohol. Some plum, raisin, and dark fruit malt aromas. The hops are light and herbal.

T: Flavor was a big disappointment with a nondescript paper/cardboard maltiness, strong alcohol presence, and fruity raisin flavors. There was a little hops bitterness, but not nearly enough, and the alcohol presence was too strong.

M: Smooth but undercarbonated with a big body and sweetness that didn't belong.

O: Funny name but not a great beer -- too much sweetness, a little bit too much alcohol presence, some odd off-flavors. All adds up to an underwhelming beer experience.
