A mixed case from Costco with 4 different Brewer's Collection beers
A - reddish-copper body topped with a frothy ivory head that holds decent retention, leaving some lacing as it fades to a foam
S - metallic, toasted grain, herbal hops, toffee, caramel
T - nutty, toasted grain, herbal, caramel, burnt toffee, metallic
M - thin, resiny, chalky, finishes dry with the herbal notes lingering
O - a lot of odd flavors going on here, hard to describe actually. It does get a bit better as it warms. I still would not drink this again.

11.5 ounce bottle, a friend gave this to me last month and I have no idea how old it is. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy reddish/amber color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are OK. Not much to the aroma, the brew smells like toasted malt, toffee, and dark bread/bready malt. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but doesn't seem as strong. It's not bad tasting, but I think the flavors are weak. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit coating and easy enough to drink. Moderate carbonation. Nothing memorable about this beer at all. Worth a try if you can find a single or get a free bottle like I did.
