3.05/5  rDev -24.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Friend of mine just forced me to take 4 bottles of this home tonight, seems he didn't like it. These are most likely pushing a year so this should be interesting as i'd never age this beer.

The pour is a thick, cloudy, and yeast filled reddish color. Not much head but age will do that.

This smells like a candy of sorts. Lots of spiced apples, caramel, molasses, with maybe hints of plums and raisins.

The taste is certainly of apples, caramel, and spices left from the hops. The opening however is a touch soft and watery.

Medium body without much carbonation.

An interesting and decent beer, though I'm not sure that it is even remotely with the style. This is certainly a very interesting take on it and it isn't bad by any means.
