look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A- pours a dark brown with a one finger light tan head. About what I expected, nothing too crazy

S- light resinous hops, tons of sweet-smelling malt

T- slightly bitter, very sweet overall. Lingering alcohol comes through as well. Tastes almost leathery as well

M- medium bodied on the thick side

O- not really in love with this....just seems pretty bland overall and not sure of what it wants to be

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Arrives a clear chestnut brown with red throughout. A light tan head with good retention and decent lace for the style.
Smell is very weak with just a little sweetness and malt to be found after a lot of searching.
Taste is malty with spice, juniper and a medicinal aftertaste.
Full body, fairly smooth and lightly effervescent. Slight drying. Good but just barely.

Serving type: on-tap

3.61/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep mahogany color with a nice two finger tan head that leaves some lace behind.

Aroma is lots of chewy caramel mingled with some toffee along with good dark fruit notes plums raisins. Some light pine notes for the hops not a huge nose but pleasant.

Taste is close to the nose deep rich caramel notes dominating not much toffee in the taste as the nose. This one is close to cloying loads of caramel even appear in the finish but the pine notes barely keep it from being to sweet.

Mouthfeel is good a heavy medium with medium carbonation level.

Overall good brew just not as good as I was expecting especially from SweetWater as they brew some good stuff.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a mostly clear reddish dark brown, one finger thick khaki colored head that quickly fades to a thin ring, with spotty lacing. Smell: dark brown sugar, date bread.. sugary with dark fruit and mild breadiness with a very mild earthy + spicy hopping. Taste: caramel, date, toasty nutty and vinous notes, with enough spicy hopping to keep this sugar bomb from being too sweet. Not very interesting, but definitely enjoyable.

3.58/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Dark brown body that does allow some passing light. Tall off white to tan head. No lacing.

Smells of walnut, russet potato, and neutral spirits (ie vodka.)

Real nutty flavor with some earthy hops and wet leaves. Slightly hot, as expected.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with sufficient carbonation.

It's an ok beer, but nothing that stands out. There's really no depth and its bland. It tasted more like a big brown ale than anything else.
