Bottle - Very dark brown with a tan head. Malty and chocolatey aroma with a faint hint of coffee and leather. Chocolatey taste with roasted malt, cocoa and coffee. Nice and smooth and easy to drink, but it feels a bit watery in places. Having said that, it’s really enjoyable.

pours brown with beige head.
Aroma had a lot of cereal notes that seemed like Smack cereal box, some roasted malts.
Flavor was on the weak side, plenty of grainy/cereal, roasted malts with notes of chocolate and a watery finish.
