look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Dark cola color. Some light passes. The head is low-riding, thin, surface-covering, but spotty.

Yep. Smells like a Samoa cookie. Malty roast, caramel, coconut, toffee sweetness, cocoa, and a hint of maraschino cherry. Maybe a thin mint hop, too. Chocolate grows as it warms.

Toasted coconut bookends flavors of caramel, devil's food cake, roast, pomme, and earthy bitterness. Tastes like slice of German chocolate cake. Pretty impressive, really. I love German chocolate cake, and there's nothing off-putting in the flavor to distract me away from a guilty pleasure dessert beer. So easy to drink, too. Soft body and soft carbonation. One might fault Dirty Little Freak for being too light. It's not rich or fulfilling, it's just pleasant and unobtrusive.

Merely, delicious with the added ingredients.

3.49/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark coppery pour with a dark beige, thin, whispy head that was opaque in the vessel. No lacing, some signs of carbonation around the edges.

S: Aroma of dry scotch and caramel, spicy with some fruity sultanas and strong indications of rootbeer candy. Some sugar-rum coffee additions.

T: Deep caramelized sweetness, peat with a light smokiness, originally mistook this for a scotch ale at first. Sweet figs and raisins with a touch of honey-munich sweetness. Toasty buttered oak, hazelnut coffee with some butterscotch sweetness. Lastly there is some sweet cola and rootbeer twang on the finish.

M: Buttery creamy, mid-heavy thickness, that was softly carbonated.

O: Overall a sweetly caramelized malting similar to a scotch ale, a sweet brown ale that may be a bit much in multiples but is interesting for a take.
