4/5  rDev +12.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Sort of like a nice lightly burnt caramel on the nose with bits of chocolate for highlights. It leaves a sweet and nutty impression on the brain.

Pours a deep clear amber with a few bubbles of carbonation that rise to the slightly off-white, thin head. Lacing is thin but adequate to satiate me. It's a really nice looking beer.

Nice sweet start that brings up this brown sugar caramel-like flavor and rounds out to a flavor reminiscent of eating a toffee bar with chocolate and nuts. Very nice and simple flavors coming off of this beer. It's smooth and medium bodied, with little carbonation. Its a solid Alt bier that I'd love to have again.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle with no code date visible into a pint glass and get 1/4 finger of head.

A: Pours a dark amber color and I get 1/4 finger of head that is gone almost immediately to leave a ring around the top of my glass. There is a little lacing but nothing to write home about.

S: Sweet malts and the smell of nuts.

T: Taste of sweet malt a little bitterness and finishes sweet. Overly sweet.

M: Medium-bodied and carbonated. It goes down ok.

O: This beer is just ok. This is not a beer I would go to again.
