look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

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
