Black with some reddish edges. chocolate chip cookies, porridge, coffee bean aroma. gentle marshmallow smoothie carbonation, very dry overly burnt coffee bean flavors, bitterness from the beans lingers. oatmeal added a lot of depth but the coffee took it away.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Faint aroma of toasted malt. Roasted/toasted malt flavors on the palate, balance seems just a little bit off. Still pretty good overall.
