3.28/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance- Not impressed with the head retention or lacing. Color is a dark, deep brown.
Smell- Nutty and raisiny.
Taste- Very toffee-like and raisin character to it.
Mouthfeel- Straight up medium.
Overall- Alright, I am revisiting this one for a third time so it is absolutely drinkable. The reason I am giving it a 5/10 is as follows: It is in a class of it's own being a blend of three different classes of ale. I'm betting the other beers that make this one up are better off drank straight than being combined into this concoction of a brew. I can drink it, but that's not saying too much. Cheers to those who do.

22 oz. bottle purchases several months ago at the Foggy Bottom/West End Trader Joe's in Washington D.C., unknown bottling date, poured into my FFF Teku glass, drank 9/30-10/1/13 over an hour:
A: 2/3 - deep amber-brown, minimal clarity, pours thickly with a rocky tannish head that subsides into a glass lacing
S: 8/12 - very muted aroma but, on warming, there are faint toffee, caramel and alcohol notes
T: 13/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's a slight bitterness that quickly gives way to middle-of-the- mouth malt flavors that accompany the aroma --> toffee, caramel dried fruit (figs and dates especially); unfortunately, the sweetness is too cloying/overbearing for me suggesting either underattenuation or too high mash T; no diacetyl, no DMS or other off-flavors; 10-15 second aftertaste is mostly a turn-off
M: 3/5 - moderate bodied; appropriate carbonation for style; subtle booze for 8.5% ABV
O: 6/10 - I don't want to lambast this beer given it's supreme affordability but the cloying sweetness was not my speed; however, for $3-4 at your local Trader Joe's, it's hard to pass up at least once, but I doubt that I'll be returning for the 2014 iteration unless it's something different and/or special
TOTAL = 32/50
