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

I got a 20 ouncer of this on tap. This pours a really nice dark copper/amber color with a nice uneven off white head. The aroma is sort of caramely and malty. The taste is similar, with sweet but light brown sugar flavor. The taste is fruity but also contains some good hoppage. THe spicy hops balance out the malts nicely.

This is a unique and in my opinion an above average beer. Lots of character to it. The mouthfeel is moderate, almost creamy. I could have a good amount of this.

Serving type: on-tap
