look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy reddish brown, nie thick tan head forms, settles down into a nice layer, great lacing, great retention. Smell is sweet, berries, yeast, caramel, almost a burnt currant kind of aroma, real nice though. Taste is sweet, very fruity, some citrus, yeast, little bit of booze, pretty weak compared to the smell for me though. Mouthfeel is thin bodied with high carbonation, finishes dry, very attenuated.

Available in South Dakota, if you would believe it. Pours a mostly red amber color with darker browns throughout. A little cloudy, but a good off-white color foam with good head retention and lacing.

The aroma is very sweet with malt and very much noticeable. Rich Belgium malts bring out darker fruit smells such as figs plums. This mixes with definite darker candi flavors. There are backgrounds notes of yeasty and a touch of vanilla wafers.

The taste follows suit with a strong malt presence. A big body with Belgium pale and big biscuits and chocolate flavors. Fig and raisin tastes mix throughout. The candi is hard to miss with a sweet syrupy taste. Some spiciness and not really any hops but most of this is hidden by the big malt.

The body is big but not necessarily full. Limit Dextrins and bits of chewiness are a big presence. This really limits the drinkability of the beer. A dessert beer is the best descriptive word. Still nice to know you can pick it up in the middle of nowhere.
