4.35/5 rDev +3.3%
16.9 oz bottle poured into a tulip.
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with some red around the edges. Fairly heavy carbonation and a big cream head. Moderate lacing.
Aroma: This beer has a piny, buttery, biscuity, grassy smell. It's appealing for sure. Very aromatic.
Taste: Raisins and dark fruit dominate the taste of this beer, which also has a booze kick and hefty malt presence. There's also biscuit, grass and apricot. Some mild figs, too, and some noticeable citrus.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied beer, which is a good depth for this beer, because a heavier body would make it a little too "big." It's reasonably dense, but approachable.
Overall: Sip it, savor it, and enjoy it. Another great beer from MBC, everyone's favorite simple-label-loving brewery. You really don't need to go nuts on bottle designs when your beer is this well crafted. It strikes me as kind of an IPA/amber hybrid, and will appeal to fans of either.

500ml bottle, a bit past its 90 day freshness date (dated 4/15/14) poured into a pint glass
A: Amber with a hint of red and a lingering one-finger head
S: Solid roasted malt, a bit metallic, some earthy notes and a bit of the mentioned raisin
T: Roasted malts, nutty and a solid hop presence
O: I'll have to find a fresher bottle but even as is this is very well made, so far I have yet to have a bad beer from Maine & wish they were available locally
