Type: 550-ml (18.6 oz.) bottle
Glass: Stone Ruination pint glass
From: Trader Joe’s in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $2.99
Purchased: Nov. 24, 2014
Consumed: Nov. 30, 2014
Misc.: Silver foil on head and neck of bottle

Poured a caramel, amber, clear color with two fingers of khaki tan, frothy head. A good amount of streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Average amount of retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled boozy caramel malts up front, which gave way to plum, dates, roasty malts, toasty nuts, earthy rye hops, and more sugary caramel. Booziness reminded me of Wild Turkey. (Smell - 3.38)

Tasted sugary caramel malts once again. Not as boozy as the nose. Also roasty malts, toasty nuts, raisins, dates, grainy rye malts, toast and slight rye whiskey. (Taste - 3.38)

Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt, boozy, malty finish. (Feel - 3.38)

Nothing too special about this beer. I wouldn’t have it again. (Overall - 3.38)

Yeah, here's my second review. The first wasn't good, since the horrible BA software is making me do it again, it won't be better.

The brew makes me wonder why. What were they thinking.

It is yellow and very malty smelling. The taste is bitter sweet. But dirty. The aftertaste is the same dirty.

It doesn't work for me, like this web site, often
