look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

S - Ripe red fruits. Banana and a healthy dose of smokey phenols. Bit of candy sugar, like powered sugar. Alcohol hides deviantly in the background.

A - Hazy dark amber with red highlights. Medium sized tan head holds a thin cap of tiny bubbles. Good lacing.

T - Candy sugar flavor foremost but lending little sweetness. Banana shows up here. Red fruit maltiness in the middle. Drastically drying spicy alcohol feel at the finish.

M - Medium-full to full bodied, dry, medium carbonation.

O - Fantastic aroma. I expected a little bit more sweetness the the flavor and a little less carbonation to ease the alcohol. Nice evening sipping beer worthy of a try.
