look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: copper amber and hazy little suspended particles in it, looks unfiltered like a home brew. bought an inch of head dissapating quickley, fair lacing.

S: Very strong malty sweetness, ginger spiciness to it. very nice

T: Malty sweet, slight fruit and ginger or raisin taste, matched the smell very well

M: clean medium body, with a crisp dry finish

O: Great overall beer, I liked the overall look and taste of the beer it reminded more of a homebrew than a typical craft beer. Good drinking, higher alcohal than most session beers, but much better tasting without hitting the double digit alcohal levels of alot of newer craft beers.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Poured into oversized wine glass - pours a dark mahogany with a 1 finger head that quickly diminishes.

S - Smell of Citrus, and a slight Caramel. Smells very good although sweet.

T - I could instantly taste the Caramel and Toffee sweetness, with a slight malt undertone. this is a good tasting beer - although best in moderation.

M - Mildy carbonated, medium-full body. Very drinkable

O - This is a very drinkable beer, although I would only drink it in moderation as it's pretty sweet. This would go good along with steak or a dessert. The Caramel and Toffee taste is great and this is a unique beer.
