3.6/5 rDev -6%
Pours a deep brown, slightly cloudy with garnet highlights when held to light. Bubbly frothy tan head shows some staying power and lots of sticky lace. Heavy toffee and caramel on the nose with hints of butterscotch, light fruit, and ethanol. Faint hint of earthy hops, but this one smells like its a gonna be sweet. My nose certainly didn't steer me wrong this is a sweet beer. Lots of toffee, butterscotch, caramel and brown sugar, bits of fruit and earthy hops. Medium to thick body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy sugary mouthfeel. This grew on me, but it really needs something else. Maybe some more hops, or something else to cut through the almost over bearing toffee sweetness.

3.68/5 rDev -3.9%
Bottled on 10/01/13, gotta love bottling dates.
Pours a large fizzy frothy thick 2+ finger head that fades pretty slowly, some spotty lacing, very dark mahogany brown color with hints of light coming through.
Nose nice brown malts, little nutty, caramel, syrupy, with some earthy spicy hops, fresh wort, and mild boozy aroma.
Taste brings more brown malts, sweet and a bit syrupy, candy syrup with caramel and nutty flavors, mild boozy taste and warmth, more sweet fresh wort. Also some earthy hops, faint pine and forest floor, mild to fair bitterness. Finish is dry and not really sticky either, mild bitterness, bit more earthy hops, caramel, nutty syrupy flavors lingering.
Mouth is med to a bit bigger bodied, lots of carbonation perhaps a bit too much, touch of booze warmth, bit syrupy.
Overall meh, an OK beer but nothing too special, a bit over carbonated, not hoppy enough for the style, more like a big brown ale than an alt. Then again, it is pretty tasty and enjoyable.
