3.5/5 rDev +1.7%
A: A very dark red-brown color. A head forms and then disappears almost as quickly.
S: Nose is predominately raisin and fig dark fruitiness. A tiny bit of chocolate is buried in there also.
T: There's a lot going on here. Tea flavors appear on the front end, moving into bready and biscuity sweet malts. Dark fruit is in the background and the trace chocolate notes appear again. Sweet overall.
M: Light body, quite under-carbonated. Slightly dry finish.
O: A quality beer that would be much better with some bubbles. Underrated beer overall in my opinion.

From notes. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip.
Out of the bottle, my pour has a full amber color with a moderate off-white head.
The aroma is nearly non-existent. What smell does come out of the glass is toasted bread, caramel,
Some sweet caramel or toffee go along with a touch of toasted bread. Unfortunately, this is a very faint flavor and there is a processed, metallic flavor that is almost as noticeable.
The Magician has a very light body and medium carbonation.
This beer really does nothing for me except encourage me to dump it out.

I got a half finger of tan head over a ruby body. Head disappeared in seconds, with no lacing on the glass.
Malty, with bread and caramel notes.
The taste is to the nose, only a little more complex. It adds a good earthiness at the end.
Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied. It washes down rather quickly. It leaves a faint coat near the back of the tongue, and finishes slightly dry.
