look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

One finger tan head, moderate carb bubbles and reddish brown body. Coriander, pepper, bit of banana esters, not an overpowering aroma altogether. Mouthfeel is medium heavy, fizzy, slightly chewy, leads you to expect more out of this than what you get. Taste is overwhelmingly malt, maybe a hint of hops on the back end. Drinkable but not really impressive in any regard.

3.54/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours out to a nice buff, creamy head that falls to a creamy ring that persists. no significant lacing. Color is reddish dark brown and filtered clarity. Aroma is caramelized malts, molasses, honey graham crackers with a slight wisp of spicy hops. Flavor is malty and sweet but not as sweet as the nose implies. No discernible hops on the tongue. Mouthfeel is thin and sticky. Overall, a decent quaff that is worthy of repeating.
