2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Black pour with nary a head. There was a slight head when I poured it, but it faded so fast I forgot it was there. Minimal lacing, if any at all. Coppery smell, with some malt and coffee. Watery tasting malt concoction. Not bad tasting, just a little bit on the bland side. Bitter mouthfeel mixed with a muted sweetness. Or, more accurate, watered down sweetness. Not a bad beer at all, just seems like they made a very good beer, then diluted it down to make a good beer.
