Aroma: can smell alcohol with some fruity and malty undertones; otherwise, not very fragrant; Appearance: almost black with tan head that quickly dissipates; Taste: too wheaty/yeasty for my taste; some complexity but a bit disappointing; Palate: thick, creamy and satisfying; Overall: just can’t go over a 12 for a yeasty beer.
