look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a draft into a imperial pint at Hooley's in La Mesa. Color was copper amber. About an inch of head. Light white lacing on the top that moved to bubbles and then dissipated rather quickly. Minimal film on the sides of the glass.

Smelled dark fruits up front with a touch of caramel. Very malty on the nose. Toasty earthy whiff as well.

Tasted dark fruits, mainly grapes. That gave away to a bland aftertaste. Nothing special here.

Medium body. Creamy oily texture. Fizzy (highly) carbonation. Abrupt finish.

Not as good as I remember. I remember in college trying this at one of our keggers and thinking it was one of the best things going. A pretty average beer overall.
