I like 21st Amendment brewery and have enjoyed most of their beers that I have sampled, this is one of their top contenders in my book.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, deep mahogany color with a frothy head. Fair amount of sediment that appears after poured. Thin line of retention while drinking and minimal lacing.

Smell: Malty and sweet. Dark fruits like figs or raisins.

Taste: Sweet, very malty, caramel, light on the oak flavor, a little fruity.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, carbonated and crisp.

Overall: I liked this beer immediately upon trying it and would definitely drink again. The high alcohol content adds a kick, but the flavor is not compromised, and I find it a nice unique flavor that is enjoyable.
