look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served - Bottle poured into a Stein

Appearance
Dark pour with a slight 1/8 inch head that tapered off 15 seconds after pouring. Just a small amount of head remains on side of glass as you drink.

Smell
Rich, molasses, malty, almondy scent.

Taste
Can taste the molasses, coffee, chocolate, and malt flavor very well, however the taste of carbonation makes it seem a little flat.

Mouthfeel
Rich presence in your mouth. A nice warm feeling as you swallow. Slight carbonation.

Overall
A little bit underwhelming taste after a great smell. Not as rich as I had figured it would be. The chocolate after taste is excellent, however mine did seem a little flat.

Serving type: bottle
