Poured a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Poured a a nice amber, with a big creamy head that lingers around and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is big, with notes of fruit (raisin maybe?), caramel, and little bit of hops. Taste is a little dialed back from the aroma, as those aroma notes are present, but more blended together as opposed to being distinct, as they are in the aroma. Still, a nice flavor to it, with a very slight hop bitterness on the finish. Fairly carbonated and a slightly thinner mouthfeel. A good craft fall-back.
