3.04/5 rDev -20%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3
A - poured a dark brown almost black with mahogany hue when held to the light. Two finger light tan head that seemed very loose dissipated quickly.
S - nice sweet malt with hints of caramel, peppery spicyness. Slight licorice character.
T - taste is interesting. Brown ale ish in malt character with a bright citrus hop. Very prevalent yeast character throughout, almost an autolyzed flavor. Weird baked cookie notes in the background, if that is such a thing, tastes like it. Finishes really dry. Seems to be missing somethin, there is a pleasant fruityness that just can't find it's way through.
M - light body with dry finish, too light for the appearance.
O - this is weird, not in a good way. The flavors from malt and hops are subtle behind a massive yeast character. Not the best experience, probably wouldnt seek out another. Not a drain pour by any means, just not that good.
