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

A: When viewed from afar, the beer appears black in color but upon closer inspection when held up to a bright light it is clear very dark red and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin tan colored head and a large collar that rises up near the edges of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose with notes of roasted malts.
T: The taste very much follows the smell but also has some hints of cola-like sweetness and very faint amounts of bitterness.
M: It feels a little more than light-bodied and thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and goes down easily but seems to be too thin and a bit watery. It's not a bad choice if you are looking for something you can drink a lot of but has some roasty flavors.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - A light bubbly tan color head; and it is a ruby black color to it.

Smell - The burnt sweet malts smell.

Taste - It is a burnt sugary toffee malt taste, with a hoppy bitterness that tries to sneak in.

Mouthfeel - A full-bodied beer, thick; a bit over carbonated.

Overall - I enjoyed this style of beer.

From the Family Reunion 6'er... foamy short lasting tannish head atop a thin black liquid.

Nose shows caramel and dark malt.. a bit of molasses... uninteresting.

Dark molasses.. weird malty fruitiness... roasty and still very watery.

The body is thin and too carbonated.. just don't care for it.
