look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A - Ruby red perfectly clear body with slightly off white very thick head. Long lasting head and good apparent lacing.

S - Carmel malts and toffee up front pretty strongly. A decently malty body with a not as strong hop aroma to it. Kind of let down with the hop aroma.

T - Dark malts without a roast flavor throughout. A lot of malt up front with a good bitterness kick towards the middle and in the end. Finishes with a slight vegetal taste which is undesirable.

M - Medium-heavy bodied with good carbonation level and low alcohol burn.

O - A pretty mediocre beer in taste. It hides its alcohol good, and has good attributes, but when it comes down to taste I am slightly disappointed with it.

22oz bomber. Enjoy by 06.11.12. Served in a tulip.

Pours a dark, but clear ruby red. Forms about 2 fingers of beige foam that clears to islands of large bubbles and a ring. Bits of lacing left behind.

Aroma hits with the malt first, with a strong brown bread note. Some dark fruits. A nice dose of citrusy hops right behind that. A touch of alcohol.

Taste pretty much follows the nose, but is better. A lot of bready malt with a some roastiness. Middle sweetens up and is accompanied by citusy and bitter hops. Maybe a slight bit of alcohol way in the finish, but overall nicely buried.

On the high end of medium bodied with a medium level of soft carbonation. Very rich feel.
