Black as night without much head. Smells like cold coffee, tastes has coffee and slightly burnt toast - guess it would make a good breakfast beer.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours black with a head that dissipates into a thin ring. Aroma is sweet and roasty. Taste is roasty and smoky, but not the best aftertaste. Palate is really thin and makes it feel more bland than it is.
