2.7/5  rDev -27.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours dark brown. Slightly tawny. Short bubbly tan head. No retention. Mostly bubbles.

Smells like Munich caramel malt extract and roasted barley straight from the brewshop. Faint rum raisin notes along with a jerky-like smell.

Strong malt flavors up front that transition quickly into a slightly stale tasting finish. Faint date and raisin notes.

Medium bodied, pretty flat with low carbonation.

Overall I Don't really know why but this bottle grabbed my attention and I had a good feeling about it. Needless to say I was pretty let down. Being produced in '09 I feel that this beer is just past it's prime. I'd definitely like to try it fresh, but I do not recommend drinking this beer with substantial age.

3.21/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

Light tan head that fades away fast. Color is a murky caramel hued brown.

Flavors of dark fruits, molasses, raisins, caramel, and chocolate. A lot of malts. Some grassy hops. Bready. A bit of toffee.

Mouthfeel: Fairly dry. A decent amount of carbonation. Medium to full bodied.

Overall, I wasn't too impressed with this one. It has a bit of a roasted flavor in the finish and it ended kind of dry. Good flavors, just bad mouthfeel/finish.
