3.38/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Seems grossly over carbonated. At least a 3.5 finger head and gobs of lacing. It almost turns the entire beer to foam for a while. Muddled coffee brown in color.

S: Almost smells old with hints of figs, nuts and raisins.

T: I taste brown sugar and vine fruits. Kind of average in the taste department.

M: Again....overly carbonated. The carbonation could be toned down quite a bit.

O: I would recommend trying Russian River's Salavation. However, it is hardly worth the hype and the money that I paid for it.
