look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a nice, soapy, off-white head that laces nicely. Floral hop aroma behind sweet, slightly toasted malt. Deep, burnt umber color. A medium bitterness with toasted malt behind the sweetness. Lingering bitterness over lightly toasted malt. The sweetness has a nice banana-like aspect to it.

Not bad, but not really a favorite style of mine. I feel silly rating this because I'm just not a fan of this style.

Edit: I will agree with a previous reviewer that this gets much nicer as it warms.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

500mL bottle split.

A: Dark brown with violet edges. Fluffy creme foam head. Decent legs.

N: Lots of raisin, prune, toffee, and biscuit. Nicely sweet with plenty of clove and esters.

T: Surprisingly bitter with a decent amount of caramel sweetness. Pretty good, but the hops could get dialed back.

M: Slightly sticky with a bready substance.

O: A good representation of the style for an American version, but I’d prefer the real thing. Too many hops.
