Very nutty nose. Creamy tan head that left a fair bit of lacing. Fairly simple in flavor, a bit bitter, a bit smoky, a bit sweet. Decent but nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma - coffee for sure, but there is also a sweet malt sort of aroma as well
Appearance - black body color; liquid is opaque; the head is a light tan, the bubbles are very tight and packed the head about 2", and slowly dissipates into a nice slice of head.
Taste - very nice roast and toasty brew. It’s a little nutty roast sort of thing, there is a little coffee quality about it as well. Very nice.
Palate - is medium; the texture is creamy; the carbonation is soft; the finish leaves a subtle roast on your teeth and gums. Nice brew for sure
