look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a deeper brown colored beer with a two finger tan head. The head faded rather fast to leave a lighter level of lacing.

Smell – The smell is heaviest of roasted malt as well as some aromas of molasses as well as a light herbal hop smell.

Taste – The taste starts out heaviest of roasted malt. A light caramel/brown sugar sweetness is upfront, but as the taste advances further it fades more and more. More toward the end some hop flavors as well as a licorice flavor come to the tongue giving a lightly sweet and rather pleasant aftertaste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side with a carbonation level that is average. The thinner body could use a boost, but other than that it’s OK.

Overall – Quite nice and easy to drink with some decent roast and malt flavors. Not bad.
