3.4/5  rDev -10.3%

We pop the tab and pour a brew of dark roasted coffee coloring. It holds a one and a half finger head of massive tan bubbles. This shows decent retention, leaving spotty, chunky lacing down the sides of the glasses. A big film of fatty bubbles sits in broken aggregates across the liquid’s surface. Carbonation appears medium, there is moderate haze, and large chunks of yeast float about the drink. The aroma is sticky sweet with milk chocolate and fiery roasted malts. There is added sweetness of heavy creamer, warm butters, and a malted milk ball quality of chalk and sugars. Hints of caramel and gingerbread spice come with warmth, with lighter citric hops, and faint booziness wafting off the top. Our first impression is that the flavoring is comparatively mild, and less sweet than the nose had suggested. As we sip, the flavoring opens with steely malts, syrupy fig sweetness, additional coin of yeast, and charred malts. The middle bitters further, peaking with medicinal phenols, smokiness, orange peel of citric hop, and darkened chocolate malts. The finish is significantly watered through, with more soapy and piney hops, chalky grain, sugary chocolate syrup, and blended depth of char and smoke. The aftertaste breathes bitterly of chalky cacao, soured chocolate malts, light vinegars, and bittering piney hop bite. The body is lighter to medium, and the carbonation is medium. The mouth is left significantly dried, following a light and cooling coating. There is nice slurp, smack, cream, and froth to each sip, leaving the mouth happy. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks easily.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the aroma. There was a nice sweetness, with a warming creaminess, almost like a milk stout, which made for a very inviting start. The flavoring, however, didn’t match up. While there was nice bitterness, and chocolatey, malty dryness, the end of the sip felt rather watered down. The flavoring did show a bit more sweetness with warmth. This, coupled with the lighter body, made for a less than perfect brew.
