Pours a hazy copper from the bottle with thin khaki head and light lacing. Aroma of molasses, caramel, toffee, sweet malts, and booze. Taste follows, way too sweet and too boozy for me. Not so great.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Murky bronze in color with a small white head. The aroma is pretty foul. Toffee, chocolate, some dirty kitchen sink that hasn’t been cleaned in weeks and has a small puddle of standing water. Taste is better but it is very sugary. Tastes like a boozy sugar baby candy. Not too heavy of a body. Pretty forgettable.
