12oz Bottle from Whole Foods Las Vegas NV for 1.99$
Appearance - Clear brown colour with a large size frothy beige coloured head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes.
Smell - Malts, dark fruits, chocolate
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste dark fruits mixed with malts and a bit of chocolate. There is also a bit of a smokey taste. It ends with a malty dark fruit aftertaste with a hint of lingering smoke bitterness.
Overall - Just a little too watery for me. The taste is decent but this isn't something that stood as a beer I need to revisit.
