look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This poured out as a nice looking hazy brown color with a soapy white head on top. There isn't much lacing or retention on this one. The smell is sweet with some dark malts and fermented fruit aromas. There is also a burnt sugar aroma in there too. The taste of the beer is quite nice, it's sweet and malty with a sugary feel to it, it's not bitter at all, similar to a Quad but not quite. The mouthfeel is nicely carbonated and medium bodied. Overall I found this beer to be quite nice, Probably my favorite while visiting the brewpub. I would drink thins one again.
