look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A_Dark copper bordering on brown. Rich cream colored off head. A nice cap lingers as the beer as drained. Sticky lacing.

S_Roasted grain, a bit of caramel and a vague hoppiness

T_Roasted grain upon first sip. This is followed by a bit of chocolate, charcoal and dried fruit. Finish is nicely bitter with a resinous pine cone quality. This balances the initial sweetness quite well.

M_Stickier than I was expecting but with the perfect amount of tight carbonation to push through it. Dry mouth feel.

O_This is a better version of Fat Tire. Well balanced and a nice drinking beer
