look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

a: its a deep murky brown/black color with some ruby red notes at teh side of the glass 3 finger tan white frothy head

s: toasted biscuits, caramel malt, sweet generic berries, more malt

t: follows the nose very close. lightly toasted malt, caramel, toffee, fresh dough, a faint bitterness from the toasted malts, clean berries. a real nice doughy malt character in here that is also light enough to be refreshing. balanced well with the toasted notes

m: lighter side of medium with just enough carbonation to pop some of the sweeter malt in here

o: its not complex, but is definitely well made and tastes as such. its refreshing, yet provides some darker and toastier malt characteristics. the sweet berries are nice at the end of the mouth

Serving type: bottle
