Briefly....

Looks the part tho the head fades quickly. Aromas are muted, but the taste is better. This sample highlighted roasts more than choc or coffee, and the roasts are bitter , almost burnt. Mouthfeel a little watery for ABV.

Well made beer obviously tho I am not sure if, given the fact that it is highly hopped, whether storage may be an issue. Little hop bitterness to this palate.
