3.21/5  rDev -8%

Clear dark amber brownish color in the pint shaker. Some grainy aromas. Average carbonation.

This starts out with some pleasant malty warmth with a sweet touch. Maybe it's the agave syrup. Also some dark roast malt and caramel flavors. A little winey and a little scratchy in the back of the throat. A tangy aftertaste. Reasonably drinkable if you like the maltier style, but I am not being convinced that agave is a good additive to beer from the several I've had.

On tap at the brewpub. Between the chalkboard, the printed beer list, and the website, it's a little informal as to what a particular batch is called. The ABV seems to vary between 5.6 and 6.2.
