1.98/5  rDev -48.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Brown and murky. Thin collar after a small head settles.

Smell - Oh dear. Smells like paint and walnuts. A bit of acidity.

Taste - Very nutty. The paint aroma now comes off as a chemical mushroom flavor. It's kinda gross.

Mouthfeel - There's a very slight tartness that accompanies the weird off flavors. Medium body.

Overall - Bad. No one else thinks this is bad, but it's bad.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a dark brown with three fingers of light tan head that recedes into a dense cap with no lacing.

S: Sweet aromas dominate at first--light fruits, bananas, and bubblegum mostly. Some darker aromas bring up the finish, with notes of nuts, cocoa, and roasted malts.

T: The flavor is also a bit sweet at first, with flavors of dates, bubblegum, and some dark fruits. Some nutty and roasty flavors follow with a bready finish.

M: Medium-light body with mid-high carbonation, this beer is pretty drinkable, though is also slightly watery.

O: An alright beer, overall, with some interesting flavors and aromas. Unfortunately they don't mesh very well, but it's still a drinkable beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Taken from my beer journal dated 6/13/12

Appearance: 750mL bottle poured into standard pint. Colour is a nice walnut-brown with a large two-finger head that fades to a puffy layer on top with minimal lacing. No visible carbonation but it certainly is audible!

Smell: Faint aromas of sweet malts, bready yeast, and walnuts.

Taste: Well-balanced flavours of sweet, nutty malts, spicy yeast, and a warming boozy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body is thick, silky, and alive with plenty of carbonation. Finishes with a lingering stickiness.

Overall: A solid brew. In general, it is a pretty sweet beer but not in a cloying way. It is nicely balanced and interesting enough for me to want to finish the bottle.
