look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Reviewed from notes, consumed on Nov. 10 2010.

Appearance: Fairly smooth pour, I really like the way this beer looks. Comes out a deep amber (duh) with some hints of walnut. One-finger ivory head fades fairly quickly to a constant foam on the top of the beer, leaving some minimal lacing down the glass. Lots of carbonation going on here.

Smell: Meh. Disappointing in comparison to the look of the beer. There's some faint caramel in there and a slight nutty character, but the smell seems to consist mostly of some roasted grains and just a touch of hops. Nothing too special.

Taste: Fortunately the taste is a bit more robust than the aroma. Big caramel malts start out and are nicely followed with some assertive but not bitter hops. What brings this beer down however, is the aftertaste: A coarse, grainy metallic note finishes off the beer, leaving a very undesirable flavor in the mouth as the beer goes down. In short, it tastes like a regular beer with some added caramel malt.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thick and creamy but not necessarily chewy or overwhelming. The high amount of carbonation in this beer plays a part in this and contributes to the kick of the hops as the beer goes down.

Drinkability: It sits fairly heavy on the drinker, maybe a little too much for its style and rather tame flavor profile. Not bad for what it is, though. I could drink a few of these with no problem, but it gets to be somewhat burdensome.

Serving type: bottle
