look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours hazy rust-brown with a big 2 inch head that settles to a film on top and leaves thin spotty lace.

Smell is of raisins, plums and bananas with just a hint of earthy grass on the finish.

Taste is of sweet malt, raisin, plum, banana, a hint of caramel with a faint bitter aftertaste. Not overly sweet.

Mouthfeel is slightly creamy with medium body and medium carbonation.

This beer is the blueprint. Several subdued flavors that when combined become large and impressive.
