3.5/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bottle poured into a Founders snifter. Batch #107.

Appearance: Pours a murky dirty copper color with a thin beige lacing. Not much head retention.

Smell: Yeast, toffee, caramel malt, hint of dark fruit, and alcohol. The yeast and alcohol have too much of a presence for my liking, but there are some good aromas going on.

Taste: Similar to the smell. Once again, the yeast and alcohol are a bit too apparent. Underneath there is caramel, dark fruit, and bready malt. I feel like there are some good flavors here, but they are weighed down by the aformentioned yeast/alcohol flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, a bit thin for the style, with appropriately low carbonation level.

Overall: This definitely seems like it will improve quite a bit with age, but fresh the yeast and alcohol get in the way too much.

Serving type: bottle
