look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 fluid ounce bottle into an over-sized wine glass. Best by date of 05/17/14 printed on label.

Appearance: Glowing, clear amber body capped off with a nice off-white head. Good amount of lacing throughout.

Smell: Sweet caramel. Notes of apples and pears also come through. Minor floral notes are present as well.

Taste: Strong grainy taste up front. Somewhat sweet notes of fruit run alongside a strong presence of bread. The hops kick in and balance this out nicely.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth. Medium body. Very well balanced. Dry finish.

Overall: Great beer. I have not had many beers of this style so it is difficult to compare it to others, but it did not disappoint me. Recommended!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a snifter.

A - Lovely deep coppery color, pleasantly cloudy, with a medium-full head that settled fairly quickly into a thing film over the top, with some unven lacing.

S - Wonderful caramel aroma, light fruit as well. I'm thinking dried cherries. Almost no hop aroma whatsoever.

T - Full maltiness, with the caramel payoff I expected from the smell. A nice bitterness on the end that stays on the palate. A nice light warmth from the alcohol as it fades. Perfectly balanced for the style, IMHO.

M - A sexy, silky mouthfeel which lingers and stays on the tongue for just the right amount of time.

D - Incredibly drinkable. I feel like another one immediately following the first, and given the full body and flavor, impressively thirst quenching.

I'm a huge fan of this style, and this example doesn't disappoint.
