look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A: [4.00] Pours a nice mahogany color. Fors a small 1/2 finger of off white head. the head is creamy with dense bubbles. The head is gone pretty quickly. The bottle lists the ABV (7%) and there is a date code. I think it indicates this beer is 6 months old.

S: [2.00] Almost no nose. I am whiffing and whiffing. There is just nothing.

T: [2.75] I am getting a lot of alcohol coming through. That is weird for a 7% beer. It also has a bit of weird hop presence.

M: [2.75] The feel is okay - but there is a long lingering dry/bitter finish from the alcohol and the hops. It is not a pleasant finish.

O: [2.75] This is either a really old bottle and this doesn't age well - or - this is not a good beer. I am not enjoying this one. There is no nose at all. The taste is alcohol and weird bitter. I almost feel like I am drinking a bad scotch. It is just off for me.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, clear, deep, dark, mahogany color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department, either that or I’m stuffed up. I do get some very faint notes of malt and brown sugar, but not much else.

Taste: Much more in the flavor department however. Strong notes of malt and freshly baked bread. Black pepper, coriander, brown sugar-like sweetness and subtle hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and smooth, as there’s not much in the way of carbonation, what-so-ever. With an ABV of 7.0%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty tasty beer. Good balance between malt and sweet and hoppy bitterness, but at the same time, its’ nothing special. If offered, I’d happily drink it again, but I’m not picking it up again on my own. It’s a good quaff, but forgettable.
