look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Pours very dark brown/black with a huge tan head, fades at a slow rate and leaves some good lacing.

Smell is mostly roasted malt with hints of dark fruit such as raisins.

Taste is controlled by the roasted malt, slight bitter aftertaste from the roasted/burnt malt, assertive carbonation.

The lower ABV for this style of beer makes it possible to enjoy more than one (or two or three). Even with the lower ABV, I don't think any of the taste has been compromised.
