look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This has a dark copper appearance, and held a thing ring around the glass the entire way. Not much from the smell. Some sweet malts maybe. Subtle spices on the tongue. Some maltiness with something along the lines of raisin, a touch of hop. There is a pleasant carbonation on the tongue, with a light to medium feel. This one has a good drink ability. Don't know that I would pick it up on my own accord, but if I find it at a bar I might have a couple.
