Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle! 12 oz poured into a pint glass.
A: Pours a tawny copper color with good clarity, but quite a few yeast particles. The head is a one finger light mocha shade with decent enough retention.
S: Very caramel forward, almost to the point where it seemingly comes across as being chocolaty. Underneath the maltiness lies some fruity esters. A likable aroma, but not an amazing one.
T: Again, it's quite malty, with an almost chocolaty flavor profile at times. The caramel/chocolate maltiness gives way to a very plummy finish. Spots of milky lactose appear at times. It's not really complex, but it's surprisingly savorable for something that's so seemingly middle-of-the-road.
M: Not as drinkable as I'd like from a lower gravity selection - but on the opposite side of the coin, it's quite decadent feeling considering how 'small' it is. In layman's terms, it has a fairly heavy body. The carbonation is quite low for the style, which is honestly kind of refreshing in my mind.
O: I hear that this can be found in quite a few supermarkets in the West. All that does is make me wish I could find this in any ordinary gas station liquor store - I'd sure as shit pick this up over Fat Tire any day of the week.
