A: Pours a ruby/brown color. At first a two finger beige head forms, but that recedes to a ring with light lace.
S: Toasted and caramel malts up front. A nuttiness and dark fruit aroma of cherries and raisins. Fairly standard for the style, but enjoyable enough.
T: A big malt flavor as to be expected. Toasted and caramel sweetness. That aspect becomes cloying after a while. Dark fruits of cherries and raisins again. There is even a little woody flavor going on in the background, though this isn't barrel ages as far as I can tell. The sweetness lingers on and builds a little to much for me.
M/O: A full body with moderate carbonation. A bit sticky, thick and chewy. Its enjoyable enough to sip on, with hardly any alcohol presents noticeable, and hits the style points pretty well. Though not particularly exceptional in any way.

Yep, enjoyable is the word, but a predictable attempt at the style from an American brewery. As it becomes to cloying sweet and single minded after a while. I enjoy the brewery as they have done some very good interpretations of international styles, and this isn't bad by any means. I'll enjoy the bottle, but not a standout.
