3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a small tan head. Very nice aromas of coffee, charcoal and dark chocolate. Flavors are more of the same along with a slight bitterness. About the only negative I can think of is the body is a little thin, but other than that this is a very good beer.
