11.2 ounce bottle - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Best Before End: 10/02/13.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown body, flashing a little garnet when held to the light, and exceptionally clear from aggressive filtering. Tall, lasting, beige head. Nice lacing.
Smell: Dark breadiness with an edge of toastiness to it and sweet notes of caramel, cocoa, and dark corn syrup. Folds into fruity scents, from 'nanas to berries with a small spritz of wafting alcohol.
Taste: Sugary sweet malts upfront, with tastes of firm toast and little inclusions of brown sugar, caramel, and chocolate. Little inclusions, mind you. Fruity accents of banana, raisin, raspberry coming together with the unabashed sweetness to give an impression of holiday fruitcake. A few drops of Karo dark. Sweetish, fruity finish with a small sliver of alcoholic warmth.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Slight stickiness involved.
Overall: Not great, no, but no too bad, either, really. More enjoyable for me than the blonde variety, I'll say.
Serving type: bottle
