look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a Sam Adams glass, developed a modest head, dark tan in color, which dissipated quickly and had minimal lacing. Appearance was dark brown to black. Aroma was a nice malt / chocolate. Taste was malty with notes of caramel, chocolate and a slight spicy hop on the back. Mouthfeel was full and lightly carbonated. Aftertaste was malty on the front and dry, slightly hoppy, on the back.
