3.59/5 rDev +0.6%
Appearance: Pours out cola brown with a very modest cap that fritters away leaving a speckled pattern of lace
Smell: Treacle and Cadbury's Fruit and Nut bar; perhaps a hint of toasted grain
Taste: Sugary-sweet, with the candied tones from the aroma combining to produce a taste rather akin to Dr. Pepper; a bit grainy in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; a bit cloying
Overall: Well, certainly unusual, but when I want a Dr. Pepper I will buy when and when I want a beer I want a beer

12 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 11/11/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a small fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, raisin, plum, pear, biscuit, toast, chocolate, light roast, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, raisin, plum, pear, biscuit, toast, light chocolate, herbal, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, plum, raisin, pear, biscuit, toast, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Minimal carbonation and medium bodied; with a very slick, moderately creamy, and fairly bready mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a decent old ale. Good balance and robustness of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and smooth to sip on for the abv. Could use more carbonation. Pleasantly enjoyable.
