Pours a nice dark copper color with a quickly fading head.

Smells of roasted malts, toffee, and carmel. Very sweet.

First sip I noted the same thing, sweetness. Too much. It's like a Desperados with roasted malts intstead of tequila.

Mouthfeel is lIle that of a fountain soda, and carbonation is fierce but not too much.

Overall this beer is a pass, too sweet for my palate and it lacks spice and depth of flavor.

This poured a nice coppery orange. The nose was malty along with a brown sugar syrupy smell. No hops to be found. The taste however was very thin. I was expecting some of that malty sweetness to come through but it ended very quickly. I thought the mouth feel was a bit too bubbly, almost soft drink fizz. It wasn't a bad beer, it was however average.

For a double, it's pretty thin tasting. Acidic alcohol finish, no real Carmel or accompanying notes. Kind of disappointed really. I was hoping for more Spice and flavor.
