look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a large weizen glass

A: pours a very beautiful deep caramel color that appears to be very viscous, has an abundant amount of carbonation bubbles working their way up the glass slowly from the nucleation points at the bottom of the glass, pours with a very light weight fluffy head of foam that is a very nice brown clay color and lingers around pretty much unchanged for a very long time,
S: dark fruits, particularly raisins and figs, has a nice deep sweetness to it which i would attribute to the dark candy sugar that was added during brewing
T: pretty much a spot on taste for what i expect of this style, not overly strong on the licorice type notes but nicely muted behind the sweetness and fruits and really only comes through in the finish, the dark fruits mentioned in the scent are still there just more toned down and blended, very clean and smooth
M: moderate to high carbonation that is very fizzy and kind of scrubs the tongue as you drink, smooth across the palate and in the finish, even with the sweetness it has it is only slightly cloying after the finish and is nicely thined out throughout
O: a fantastic representation of the style, as i mentioned it is very well balanced and nothing really jumps out of it at your senses across the board, my experience with Brooklyn tells me this is par for the course for them, they may not do anything over the top or cray but they do what they do phenomenally well and with respect to the expectations of the style
