2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours a pitch black with a nice, creamy tan head. The head is slow to fade leaving behind excellent lacing. Coffee, caramel, and vanilla are present in the nose. Low carbonation and a very creamy mouthfeel. A bit of dryness as expected for the style. Coffee and a bite of bittersweet chocolate on the palate. The coffee taste lingers awhile. The body is a little too watery in my opinion.
