look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours out dark as night with a tiny brown head that dissipated right away. Smell is of raisins and other dark fruit. I really don't get much else from the nose. Taste is much like the nose. Really I only get dark fruits, maybe a little brown sugar, really just not that much going on but it is pretty tasty but nothing special to be sure. Mouthfeel is ironically slightly thick even though it seems not very carbonated. Just not a very complex beer in my opinion. It tastes OK and I wouldn't not drink it but it's not anything that I would buy again.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark ruddy brown with a trace tan head and no lacing. Smells of figs, chocolate, dried cherry, caramel. I can taste the chocolate nibs, figs or possibly raisins, dark dried fruit, caramel. Body is medium light. Carbonation is a bit weak. Overall the miscellaneous flavors aren't working for me.

Pours dark reddish brown with a small light tan head which fades quickly, leaving no lacing. Has an interesting aroma with cocoa nibs, dark fruit, vanilla, spices, and brown sugar. Smells like it will be sweet.

Tastes just like it smells with cocoa nibs, dark fruit, vanilla, spices, and brown sugar. Has a sweet flavor with no hop bitterness.

Medium bodied with modest carbonation. Has a cocoa nib and dark fruit aftertaste. A pretty good beer, but I'm not sure if all of the flavors compliment each other real well. Glad I at least picked up a single can to try this.

3.46/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dark brown, small, fast-fading head.

Smell: Mild chocolate, vanilla, spices.

Taste: Spices (cinnamon, ginger) then shifts to moderate chocolate with some vanilla and coffee flavors. The spices show up again in the finish.

Overall: Supporting this local and 12oz cans. It's an interesting mix of flavors but doesn't really make a clear statement. Not a stout with strong chocolate/coffee and not amped up spicy winter beer, just in the middle between those. Decent enough but not really to my tastes.

3.48/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

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.
