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

Semi hazed mahogany color with orange glow around the edges. Off white head. Caramel and hops with a faint dark fruitiness.

Dried dark fruit sweetness up front. Medium bodied that holds up well to the carbonation. Sticky caramelized glazed dark fruit bowl throughout. Faint citrus hop adds a touch of underlying bitterness but for the most part the sweetness overrides this and linger slightly. Very clean finish and smooth beer. Wish it showed a little less dark fruit. Along with the hop finish slightly dried toast flavor to help dry it out. A very clean and very drinkable beer though. Good but nothing to write home about. The alcohol is very deceptive as you cant taste it at all and it could easily pass as a 5% ABV brew.
