4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Opaque, black liquid with medium, thick tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of fresh roasted coffee, dark fruits, chocolate, pepper, fruity American hops and roasted bread. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with lots of roasted notes of coffee, dark chocolate and licorice (some ash). Medium to full bodied with pleasant carbonation and sticky, velvety mouthfeel. Really nice. Some kind of "imperial stout light". Lots of awesome, roasted notes and coffee.
