look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Dark amber with a huge foamy off-white head that leaves huge chunks of lacing on the glass. Massive caramel and brown sugar smell. Taste is mostly caramel and brown sugar with a touch of bite from the carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Feel is medium, with medium carbonation. Overall, this is a huge malt bomb, but still drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. In my opinion it's best when you can get it on tap, but still quite good in the bottle if served in a good glass. It had a slight biscuit taste. Overall, you can't go wrong with this beer, and to top it off, it's sold almost everywhere, which is nice when there's no other options except macro brews.

Serving type: on-tap
