2.78/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Dark brown body with a little dark amber lingering at the edges. Thin light beige head.

Smell: Chocolate, caramel with a definite sweet-smelling whiff of upcoming sugariness. Some toast, roast, and a sliver of fruit.

Taste: Chocolate, caramel, and roast cloaked in the heavy sweetness of Coca-Cola which lost its suds. Some estery fruitiness. A little light herb and bitterness. While it never ever dries out, at least the sweetness settles somewhat. It's a beer that requires an accompanying glass of water. Is it a case of a stuck fermentation, under attenuation, or what?

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Yes, it's a lil' bit sticky alright.

Overall: Some beers leave me scratching my head, wondering if this is really what they had intended. Simply put, it feels like an under-attenuated (or worse) beer they decided to pass off on their patrons. Still, the flavors present are likable and the low ABV is appreciated.
