Appears opaque dark brown, capped with a cratered tan head that thins after a couple minutes. Smells more of fruity esters than expected, then the usual bittersweet chocolate and coffee aromas come through, almost alternating. Dark roasted coffee and dry cocoa dominate the flavor, leaving the mouth a bit chalky. Finishes plenty bitter. Medium body and carb where it should be. It's drinkable, but don't hurt yourself seeking this out.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

LOOK: Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head and lacing.

SMELL: Roasted, deeply malty aroma.

TASTE: Strong dark malt notes of coffee and charcoal. Good finish withe robust malts. Light earthy hop character but this one is all about the malts, though the flavor ends up being more toasty and slightly bitter.

FEEL: Medium to full bodied, smooth and very tasty. Notes of espresso coffee linger on the palate.
