Medium brown colored head of varying sized bubbles. Nice coffee and roasted malt aroma with some dark fruit and berries. Color is a very dark brown. Big coffee flavor up front that lasts the duration of the drink. Moderate bitterness from the coffee along with some ash, grainy malts and juniper berries. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Finishes dry and bitter with a lingering coffee aftertaste. A little bit unbalanced but still decent.
