look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Dark color with a slight touch of dark red, yet still see-through. Small off-white head. Similar to Guinness but not as black.

Smell: Malty

Taste: Dark malty flavor with a hint of caramel.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, easy to drink.

Overall: A similar beer to Guinness, but on a lower level. After a while, the taste catches on and it is enjoyable. I would buy again.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a clear brown, 1 finger of sudsy white head, no lacing.
S - Aroma is full of burnt grains, some faint spice and pepper, a little fig.
T - Taste picks up a little, but not a whole lot, some sweet fig, a little orange up front, then some burnt caramel malt, then fades to a smokey acrid burnt taste at the end. Finishes dry and floury.
M - Medium on feel, the aftertaste is a bit too bitter.
O - Somewhat complex, but not in any gratifying way. The burnt taste and aroma is a bit too much in this.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another new beer from Magic Hat, acquired as part of the Magic Hat Night Of The Living Dead variety pack. Expectations are moderately low for this one, also.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours a coppery amber color; ruby in the glass. About one finger of off-white head recedes to a bubbly ring extremely quick. Doesn't look like much, to be honest.

S - Smell is a step up: some grassy herbal hops, crisp amber malts, some earthiness, some mineral qualities, and a hint of yeast. As I let it sit, I get a faint maple syrup sort of aroma. Faint cherry and grape juice concentrate fumes begin to creep out also.

T - Taste is a bit better than the Magic Hat Séance, but it is still pretty bland. Mild hop bitterness cuts off just before it steals the show, and gives way to crisp bready malts. Faint citrus, but nothing much. This is mainly a malt showcase here.

M - Feel is crisp and clean, with slight stickiness. Virtually no lingering aftertaste.

Overall, another fairly bland offering from Magic Hat. Better than the Magic Hat Séance, and I'm glad to have tried it, but it isn't a beer I would seek out again. Mediocre, but worth a shot.

Magic Hat Deveiled ---3/5.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Look: Deep chestnut hue, thin lacing

Smell: Toasted grain, faint cocoa powder, mildly figgy, faint hop spice

Taste: Big smoothness, ample carbonation, wet, bread crust, very mild hop flavor, balancing bitterness, watery burnt coffee note, drying finish

Not even sure what this beer is really going for, simply a malt forward Red Ale with not much else going for it ... drinkable but not noteworthy.
