look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle, consumed straight from the bottle (it's a staff meeting at work, no glassware provided).

I know from prior experience this is an amber color with pretty good head retention/lacing, so I'm giving it a 4 for appearance.

Aroma is sweet, caramelly, bready, fruity and malty. Some floral hops too.

Taste follows nose. Caramel, toffee, sweet bread and floral/spicy NW and Old World hops.

Mouthfeel is sticky and full-bodied, feels heavy and chewy.

Overall I don't have a lot of experience with this style. It's a bit too sweet and malt-forward for my taste. Decent for what it is though.
