3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque black with a small tan head. Nice coffee aroma and taste. I am surprised at the low ABV and amount of flavor they get out of this, nice. The finish is thin yet welcoming. My favorite of the group I tried.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark dark brown, tan head. Aroma is very roast with notes of coffee. Flavor is thinner than I expected. Still very much dry and with lots of coffee flavor though. Solid.
