look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
This poured an orangish-brown brown color with an off white 3/4 finger head that dissipated very quickly, yet had an overall appearance of and mouthfeel of a highly carbonated ale. The aroma is of candied sugar with hints of alcohol in the background, but overall sweet smell and maybe some fruit. The taste is also sweet and a little musty. Reminds me of a brown ale, but more complex with maybe a little fig and tobacco. Sweet but not too sweet, bitter but not too high a hop presence. The alcohol content is more pronounced in the aroma and completely subdued while drinking the ale. Very drinkable and overall this is a great ale, and with the relatively low ABV could be a session ale.
