This is one that simply lacks depth. It is all on the surface. As soon as the flavors suside, that's it. Very dark with decent head and some lacing. Smells of sulfer (which seems to be not too uncommon with SA) with some fruity malts. Initial tastes is bland, almost none existant. As it warms up, you get a nice flavor of fruity esters along with some mild malty sweetness. I find it odd that the flavor then disappears not to return. This is a light bodied drink yet very drinkable by not being too strong and having some flavor.
So far I've had this on it's own which I rate by. However, I have had some crackers and a grilled cheese sammich (using some specs of aged cheddar) and found it very nice. Overall it is a week beer. SA could make it so much better. I'm have no idea how they could make it better, but surely there is room for improvement.
