Pours a dark, reddish brown. It's just a bit too dark to assess clarity. Small beige head. No lacing and it mostly fades to a ring of foam after a minute. The aroma had earth, molasses, raisins, doughy bread, caramel and a bit of chocolate. It smells sweeter than it tastes. The taste is drier than expected, though not off for the style. It has a woody dryness with a sweet and fruity finish. Raisins, apples, dates, brown sugar and mushrooms at the end. Carbonation is somewhat high for the style. It's also rather light for the abv and style. Interesting beer, though it doesn't quite win me over.

Last but not least, least but not last... Nah, lets be real: another average sucker at best. A lil bit in the nose, a lil bit on the tongue, ok... but Raul needs more than that!

If you're going to bring your milkshake to the yard, next time make sure that you use whole milk.

Peace!
