A- very dark red appearing black or very brown, tan head, receds too quickyl and leaves a thin layer and little lace
S- sweet balanced with roast, cacao nibs, sweet coco, some tangy zesty smell I cant really put my finger on, Im guessing that is the raisin. Oh, its kind of a Cola smell.
T- Cacao and vanilla up front, roast balances out well, I'm glad they dried it out to balance, vanilla lingers on, little to no hop flavor, again that strange tang that I'm guessing comes from the raisins. Its that Cola flavor
M- Well dried out to encourage drinkability, if it we less attenuated I think it might be difficult to drink much of.
O- This has been my least favorite Indeed, all their other stuff is much better. To be honest I think it is just way too convoluted and over-engineered. The can reads like a cake recipe, cacao nibs, vanilla, raisins, brown sugar AND natural flavors, whatever those may be. I dont think they needed to add all those extras, each one on its own or with one more ingredient might have led to more complimentary flavors, but the kitchen sink approach didn't result in a successful beer for me.

Can: Poured a dark deep brown color ale with a medium size off-white head with limited retention and not much lacing. Aroma of dry raisin and brown sugar with a healthy dose of caramelized sugar is very interesting. Taste is also dominated by a healthy dose of caramelized malt with some dry raisins notes and some light residual brown sugar notes. Body is bit light to sustain all the spices and dry fruits notes with medium carbonation. Interesting beer but seems to be lacking a little bit malt profile.
