3.63/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Dark brown, with red highlights when backlit. A dark tan head which settles very quickly to a thin top.

Aroma of cocoa, roasted malt and grains. Somewhat chocolately and bitter.

Taste is much the same, with a very strong roasted flavor and a dry finish of bittersweet chocolate. Pretty hoppy, but most of the bitterness seems to come from the grains.

Medium-full bodied, and pretty drinkable, though I found the roasty character to be just a bit overdone.

3.51/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: Solid black body. Slightly beige head which dissipates quickly.

S: Not much of a nose but some smokey fudge and caramel.

T: Thick and full of fizz. Smokiness and earth, just on the right side of dry. No chocolate and in fact no malt character at all but there is some caramel in the aftertaste. Sharp and assertive but lacking backbone. Not as hoppy as I was expecting.

O: Totally lacking in malt character and one dimensional but still quite drinkable.
