4.36/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Pours like frothy motor oil. Pitch black with brown edges when held to light. Funky, beige head which subsides surprisingly quickly for how dense it starts.
Smell is mildly roasty with hints of mocha. Surprising dark fruit undertones. Pleasant.
Taste is more toffee and burnt molasses than the nose would lead on. Bitter, nondescript hop presence. Good flavor, but I think a bit of age would help as the hops detract from the flavors in this case. No booziness detected.
Mouthfeel is thick and lush. No complaints other than maybe slightly too carbonated.
Overall a fantastic beer which I will seek out again.
