Deep brown pour. Nose is a mix of smoky roasted malt, toast, and a slight mineral edge. Somewhat nutty. Flavor is nutty toasted malt with some roasted malt, light caramel, and light bread qualities. Average mouthfeel. Okay stuff.

Bottle. Deep brown body. Frothy, big-bubbled beige head, lasting. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Light resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Some tartness in the finish. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A bit chalky in the mouth. Lingering coffee bitterness.
