look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
12oz bottle from whole foods las vegas for 1.99$
Appearance - Clear copper/brown colour with a small size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an above average amount of carbonation and there iss some faint lacing. The head was gone in a few minutes.
Smell - Malts, raisins, banana, spices
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, dates/plums/raisins, yeast and a mix of spices. There is also a bit of a burnt/smokey taste and just a touch of chocolate and bananas. It ends with a dark fruit aftertaste with a bit of lingering smokiness.
Overall - Good not great. The taste is nice, it just seems to be lacking a little needed sweetness. It's just a tad too bland/thin for me. Still a good beer that I'd have no issues drinking again.
