3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
Pours near black but clear with mahogany highlights when held to the light. The tan head is rather weak and soon reduces to a ring and island.
Aroma: coffee and dark roasted malts, nicely balanced, with hints of coffee grinds, faint spices and roasted nuts.
Flavor: largely follows the aroma but the coffee is more dominant. Mild+ bitterness.
Feel: smooth, medium-full body with light but adequate carbonation.
