4.03/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a beautiful toffee red with lovely frothy head and lacing.

Smell is very complex. Yeasty, honeycomb malts, oranges. Definitely get the oak, but it contributes not so much in terms of aromatics but more in terms of a slightly fruity, Belgian, even fusel-like note.

Taste is a carryover of subtle oak, honeycomb, oranges.

Mouthfeel is moderate- goes down creamy and easily with a bitter finish, fairly sharp and yeasty, boozy, Belgian.

Overall a nice, complex beer which drinks like it might as well have come from the Fuller's stable.

This is one of my all time favorite beers. If I'm having a hard time making up my mind on what I want to get, this is one beer that I can always rely on for all around good times. The first time I tried it was on tap at a Ducks game in Anaheim and I was first taken in by it's sweet smell. Then I took a sip and have been hooked ever since

This beer goes down smoothly and in a very welcome way, likes to linger on your tongue. I'd gladly recommend this beer to anyone looking to try craft beer.
