1.98/5 rDev -48.6%
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.

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.

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.
