Bottle from C-mini mart in Dublin, CA. Pours reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma of Sweet caramel, malt, faint booze. Taste of sweet malt, raisins. The alcohol is very well hidden. Mouth feel is a bit thin, maybe I just expected it to be thicker because of the appearance. Nice fine carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a very dark brown with with reddish hues where the light hits, it’s got a great head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is nutty and rich with some leaf rot. It’s got some light chocolate, it’s aromatic, inviting and rich.
The flavor is nutty with some light leafiness. It’’s rich with some fruitiness while remaining only lightly sweet with a dry-ish finish. The bitterness & spicy notes are mild but well employed for balance.

"quite good - i think this is the better half of the RR/Avery Collaberation, but funny enough, neither beer is as good as the combo. this one has banana and spices, with other dark fruits and a heavier body as well. A very quaffable ale!"

Bottle thanks to Nielsen ! Pours a dull raw umber color with three fingers of khaki suds. Lots of sweet banana bread undertones, earthy spice, kola nut, candied anise, nutty bitterness, date, raisin, soft burnt sugar. Really well restrained yet packs a punch of flavors from beginning to end.
