look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - murky dark brown, paper thin head

Smell - big malty sweetness, dates, prunes

Taste - big sweet, cloying, molasses, big yeasty bread, mild dates, prunes, some alcohol burn

Mouthfeel - cloying, not much carb

Overall- this beer makes me realize I am starting to drift away from giant beers...
