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

Bought at Assi Plaza in Atlanta, GA.

Appearance 3.5: Poured out a lovely, translucent, dark brown. Nice, inch-high head faded to a thin but sturdy head that lasted the entire session. Decent lacing.

Smell 3.75: Very nice bouquet. Smells of deep malt, barley and a slight smokiness. Also, nice hints of marshmallow and caramel.

Taste 3.5: Front is slightly sweet, but balanced. Middle is somewhat dry, but is balanced by very pleasant and semi-sweet waves of barley malt and hints of caramel. Finish is smooth, light and refreshing with tastes of dark brown sugar, grains and a very slight hoppiness. Aftertaste is very nice: dry, balanced with a final taste of barley.

Mouthfeel 3.75: Clean, balanced...great complement to the brew.

Overall 3.75: A surprise and a good beer. Would be a great complement to almost any food. While a bit on the sweet side, it is smooth and balanced. Definitely worth a try if you find it.
