look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

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.
