look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a very deep reddish brown with a foamy two finger head. Pretty decent retention. Big patches of lacing down the glass.

On the nose is some sweet malt and grain. To me it almost smells like a Coors or something along those lines.

Taste doesn't go with the nose at all. Very very smooth. Grainy taste up front. Lots of malt. Maybe a slight hint of some lactose sweetness on the end.

Good mouthfeel. Not thin or watery at all. Good carbonation.

Would drink again for sure. Much better than expected.

Poured into pint glass from bottle. Very dark, almost black. Like soda. A strong aroma and taste. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. Sticks on the tongue for a bit. Kind of a earthy flavor. Very low carbonation. Overall it is a pretty good beer. Will try again.

3.59/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a 12 oz tulip glass, not sure of the bottle date. Pours a dark brown, with a quarter inch of white head, minimal lace. Smell is toffee, biscuit, fig, and molasses. Taste is similar, toffee and biscuit in the beginning and fig in the finish, with some caramel. Body is almost medium, could use a little more carbonation, not overly dry, and drinks easy enough. This is solid for the style.

Bottle -> Wine Glass

A: Slightly hazy dark coffee brown with a slight orange hue, 1/4" tan head, spotty lacing.
S: Milk chocolate, cloves, toasted malts, bourbon whiskey, vanilla, coffee, earthy.
T: Smokey/earthy, toasty, definitely English style with slight hops, slight bitterness.
M: Nice medium body, good CO2, nice lingering flavor and bitterness.
O: Tasty beer. A lot darker than expected. Interesting earthy/woody flavor that lingers with a back of the tongue finish.

3/5  rDev -18.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Cloudy, dark copper-brown color. Upon pouring, developed about a one finger foamy head which quickly dissipated.

Smell: roasted malt, dark chocolate

Taste: roasted malt up front, copper on the finish

Mouthfeel: somewhat sharp, slightly bitter, not too heavy, not too light

Overall: A friend gave me this beer to try. A very OK beer. It really didn't wow me or impress me, but I wasn't turned off by it either. Completely drinkable. This would be a good beer to have when you want something that's slightly robust but you want only one.
