look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Deep red hue with a big, dense head, good retention, and great lacing

S: Slightly burnt and toasted malts; some caramel and toffee and lots of brown sugar; it starts off fairly subdued but aromas do develop as it warms

T: Toasted malts, subtle herbal hops; caramel and toast--lots of bready qualities with a very subtle banana flavor lingering underneath

F: Medium mouth feel; even a touch chewy

O: An okay beer--easy to drink and pleasant enough; not my favorite of the 12 pack but decent enough

Serving type: bottle
