look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured pretty damn aggressively from a 12 oz bottle into a typical pint glass. No date on the label. Bought it on a whim this evening.

A: Orange-tinted dark amber with an anemic 1/2 finger of fizzy off-white head. Poor retention. Surface film at 30 seconds. Pretty clear.

S: Sweet malt. Light, indistinct fruit. Rubber?

T: Roasted malt sweetness up front with a touch of hop bitterness on the finish. Semi-dry to somewhat sweet. Some tang in the aftertaste. This seems to quickly replace the flash of initial flavor. Faint traces of toffee, dark chocolate linger. Half-way through now and a bitter alcohol flavor seems to dominate.

M: Moderate carbonation. Relatively thin body for the style and flavor profile. Better out of the bottle.

O: Wow, this went downhill fast. Started off tolerable and really just nose dived into unpleasant off-scents and off-flavors. I'm not dumping it or anything - let's be real - but not a whole lot of redeeming factors. The one I had directly from the bottle seemed better.
