3.58/5 rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A - Slightly hazed amber brown color with a small to average sized, light, bubbly, thinish, off-white head. Average retention leaving a faint ring of lace.
S - Sweet and lacking spice for the style. Plenty of caramel, bready malt. Brown sugar with hints of dark fruit.
T - Not much spice in the taste either. Loads of caramel and bready malt with brown sugar. Reminds me of a shortbread or gingerbread (sans ginger). Touches of raisin and hints of cinnamon and clove. Some sweet nuttiness.
M - Medium body with average carbonation. Slick, oily feel with a wet finish.
D - Sweet without the spice of the style to balance it out. Not cloying and finishes fairly clean. I finished my glass fairly easily, but wasn't necessarily craving more.
Notes: Sweet but not spiced (it could use some). A bit odd for the style. Not bad, but different. Kind of a liquid cookie dough. Decent but nothing worth searching for.

(Served in a dimple mug)
A- The dense glowing brown body has a lumpy, bubbly tan head that sticks to the glass a bit.
S- The fruity note leads to light toasted malt notes in the finish.
T- The fruity quality leads to a malt flavor that has notes of dry toasted biscuit malt and perhaps some ester notes that might be a slight stale quality. The finish has a slight clove spice to it with a pungent hop hint that lingers.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a bit of a flat texture on the tongue and no alcohol heat.
O- The odd fruity flavors and the lack of luscious malt makes this a bit drab and lifeless.

4.1/5 rDev +7.3%

This beer pours a ruddy brown, with a thick tan head. Good lacing. The aroma is very malt forward, as to be expected. Caramel with hints of chocolate and peat. Some floral/earthy hoppiness. The mouth feel is deceptively light for the amount of malt flavor you get. Very much the same as the aroma, although I do feel there is a bit to much hop presence if you go by the BJCP guidelines. My wife and I love this style and this is great example of the American version of a Caramelized Scottish 80/Wee Heavy. I made a great beef carbonade with the last flat pint in the growler (my wife made me save it for her and never got to it). It's just as good in the bottle.
Serving type: growler
