3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma was a nutty coffee. It pour a rich dark, black color like your morning coffee but with a solid head. I did not find this beer sweet at all. It was a rich hazelnut coffee, that finished fairly clean. I did not find it that complex, it was an ok beer.
