3.7/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Darkish brown color. Hazy. Doesn't appear to be filtered. Pour with a very tiny head, less than a quarter inch.

Smells sweet. Has a powerful scent of honey or cantaloupe. Malty. Definitely smell the alcohol, but it doesn't dominate as with other beers.

Sweet. Smooth. Hints of chocolate or cocoa. Malty. Alcohol doesn't dominate here either.

Very smooth texture. Well rounded and easy to drink. Low carbonation.

Overall, it's a very easy to drink style.

Grade: B+

3.24/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pricey at $5 for a 7 oz. bottle, jeez. Pours amber with very little head. Strange aroma. Oyster sauce, tabasco, spaghettios, malt. Spaghettios for sure (wife confirms this). Flavor is nice, with a scotch and malt backbone on top if some sweet dark candy flavors and, yes, a sweet tomato-ey essence. Somewhat unique, but one of the funkiest smelling beers I have encountered. Medium slick mouthfeel, with some creamy finish. Not bad, but a little weird.
