4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a huge sweet malt bomb! Pours a clear dark amber with very little head retention. Aroma is caramel malts and plum. Taste is very sweet with the malty breadiness sticking out along with the fruity plum notes. It has a medium full body with average carbonation. The clean lager yeast really lets the malt shine through, which seems to be a rarity these days with ultra hoppy IPAs.

Caramel, boozy, & overall a solid offering! Pours dark copper w/out much of a head or lacing. The aroma is sweet caramel goodness! The taste is caramel, malt, a touch of hops, & alcohol. The mouthfeel is quite nice & the 8% isn’t overbearing. Really nice beer!
