3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black in colour with a very thin mocha head. Aroma is a little subtle but with noticeable roasted malts and coffee scents. Taste is malty with a sweet undertone, slightly watered down. Medium body, thin on the palate and softer carbonation. Overall a good but not spectacular beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy red coffee body under fast-dissolving brown-tinged white head and frosty lacing.
Aroma is roasted coffee ground and chocolate toffee, some leather and wood, and hint of cough drop or soy sauce for undertone. But it’s got a garbage funkiness or tang. Maybe it’s just me.
Flavor is coffee bitter and mild sweet and umami.
Palate is a bit thin and slightly fizzy with a coffee bitter long finish.
Overall weaker than some but at only 5.4% maybe the lowest, and for that, it’s pretty good, but there are better.
