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

Appearance: Pours an auburn color with a modest head that fails the retention test; not much lacing at all

Smell: Very malty, with a strong treacly aroma

Taste: Treacle, up front, with a growing earthy element; finishes sweet and slightly earthy

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Decent enough, but lacks the subtle peaty element I seek out for this style

Thanks, duels, for the opportunity

Thanks to raveskdr for bringing this can over the other night. Served in a Mikasa tulip.

Pours a clear brown color with a small tan head that diminishes somewhat quickly, leaving behind an average amount of lacing as it falls to a collar.

The nose has some nice toasted bread notes along with brown sugar and caramel. There's a touch of maple coming through as it warms and heading into the flavor. Moderate sweetness and a light bitterness coming off of a medium body that's slightly boozy.

Malt bomb here, though fairly well done and appropriate for the style with enough bitterness to carry it through. Perhaps a bit too boozy for the alcohol volume, but otherwise fairly nice.

A: Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head that quickly goes away.

S: Some sweet, bready malt with a bit of roastiness.

T: Follows the smell. Lots of sweet malt thats slighty roasty. There is also some raisin, plum, and caramel with a bit of alcohol warming. The finish is just slightly bitter.

M: Medium carbonation with medium body.

O: I enjoyed this, but I think it could use a bit creamier, smoother mouthfeel.

Can (2012)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, barkingelectron!

Murky dark brown and ruby with a moderately sized light brown head. Surprisingly, this leaves almost no stick down the glass.

The aroma is a wonderful combination of plum and raisin, some caramel, and bread.

The flavor is a pleasant combination of caramel and toffee, bread, some plum and raisin, and a bit of alcohol bite.

Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation.

A nice example of the style, though there's a touch of alcohol presence which bring this one down a notch.
