3.85/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance - Pours a cloudy, burnt orange color with an off-white, 3 finger head. Decent retention, resulting in a thick, semi-sticky lacing.
Smell - Notes are clean, if not subdued. Hints at maple and a touch of raisin.
Taste - Starts sweet with heavy malt character; maple backed by notes of tobacco and raisin. Heat becomes more noticeable mid-taste, but not to a detriment.
Mouthfeel - Full-bodied, with a lively carbonation. Goes down smooth and clean.
Overall - Good beer; clean and smooth with decent flavor. Is it worth the high cost? Probably not.
Serving type: bottle
