look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pour: Dark red-brown, moderately clear, with a nice, fluffy, off-white head.

Aroma: Toasted malts, sweet with hints of molasses, caramel, and rye bread. No real hop presence in the aroma.

Taste: Crisp, prickly mouthfeel. Soft notes of chocolate, lots of toasted toffee with a hint of alcohol. I still get no hop presence in this beer. Long, sweet finish. I also don’t detect anything from the granite, but perhaps I would with a similar recipe traditionally brewed.

Overall: A decent lager, worth trying, maybe you’ll like it a lot more than I did. It also wasn’t terribly expensive, so a worthwhile experiment.
