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

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter—serving as a replacement for my broken goblet.

A: A deep-reddish amber hue, close to a mahogany, but not quite. An off-white, slightly khaki colored one-finger head starts off looking nice, but eventually fades to nearly nothing. A legion of pen-dot sized bubbles remains on top with a ring of equally tiny bubbles around the edges. One or two instances of lacing left down the glass.

S: Some under-roasted malts with hints of dark fruit and some breadiness. Hints of caramel and brown sugar underneath.

T: Lots of roasted malt upfront, giving this a slightly burnt profile with some chocolate-covered raisin flavor underneath. A little bit of nuttiness and earthiness from the yeast comes through in the finish, but is short-lived due to being overtaken by those burnt characteristics.

M: Medium-bodied with a crisp carbonation. Flows smoothly across the palate, with a moderately creamy texture. Nothing to write home about, but definitely above-average drinkability.

O: Flying Fish definitely didn't make a bad brew here, but it's just slightly underwhelming. The roasted profile is a bit too pronounced, which makes for a very burnt/smoky experience. This might be good at the pub, or paired with some food, but it didn't exactly impress me as a sip-at-home brew. Worth a try; not worth a re-buy.

Best by 12/17/13.

Pours a clear orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with toast and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that still tastes fine almost 2 months after the best by date.

A previous reviewer cited 12-15 dollars for a 6-pack. I get this for 7.99 at my local store. Definitely not sessionable(okay, so, I may drink two or more, but this will get you drunk). I drink them warm, mid-to-high 50's in to the low 60's. I love the grainy, malty, almost wild rice flavor I get. Somewhat nutty, but completely smooth and balanced. The alcohol is way too sharp when chilled in to the high 30's and low 40's, so the low reviews are reasonable if serving at low temperatures.
