(Can) Smooth, thin, fairly bitter, and lots of dark bitterness. Not enough dark rich sweetness. I kind of like it, but at the same time feel like it’s missing so much body. Hmm.

Nice coffee brown, opaque with only a rim of tan foam. Smells of roasted and toasted malts, chocolate a bit of coffee and some sweet prunes. Flavor is robust with toasted malts, some cocoa, some sweetness, and a touch of soil. A little thin for the style with low carb and a nice only slightly dry finish. Nice beer.
