look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance. Pours chestnut brown with almost two fingers of creamy khaki head.

Smell. Dark malts, caramel and cola, molasses and plum.

Taste. Dark malts, plum and molasses, light grassy bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, maybe on the low side. Medium carbonation.

Overall. Very easy drinking and tastes great. Can't believe I haven't had this classic before now ...or at least haven't reviewed it.
