This beer was served out of a 12oz. bottle dispensed into a glass....
Presentation - Cool and simple label design.
Appearance - Pours out a clear brownish amber with a solid 2 finger white/tan head that sticks around before finally dissipating into a nice foam ring. Tons of carbonation and bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.
Smell - Very sweet malt scent almost buttery with hints of toasted caramel, molasses, and brown sugar.
Taste - Tastes more bitter than sweet with hints of caramel and roast coffee. Slight hints of molasses and raisin.
Mouthfeel - Light bodied. Initial carbonation dissipates to a thin and slightly watery feel.
Drinkability - Pretty smooth with OK flavor and mouthfeel but not an overly drinkable brew.
Not a brew I would seek out to try again. Flavor profile was not really my style at all.
