3.5/5  rDev -7.7%

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Big coffee on the nose. Easy head with some lacing, but not much. Taste is stronger than the texture would indicate. A little smokiness & a bit of bitter add up to an interesting beverage. It hints at complexity but never quite gets there. Sort of like a painting in primary colors. It can be quite appealing, but with a more deft touch the challenges on both sides of the appreciation equation are amped.

Don't get me wrong, I"m enjoying this, but there are 40 taps in front of me & in that environment my thirst may be quenched, but my curiosity lingers.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle split unevenly between two little plastic hotel cups. No visible codes or dates.

Pours black with a small beige head. Small amount of fine carbonation. Smell is yeasty, bready, overripe dark fruit, cherries.

Taste is surprisingly mild. Very slight coffee or chocolate, a medium fruity bitter.

Mouthfeel is a little overcarbonated, but light. Overall, it's fairly good.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear very dark reddish brown approaching black in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some garnet red + dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall foamy tan head that reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts with a light aroma of Nestle Quik syrup.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of roasted malts as well as chocolate malts, though there is little to no sweetness associated with the flavor of this beer. Hints of earthy hops which contribute a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and very enjoyable, a nice beer for the cold of autumn/winter. Definitely worth grabbing. Alcohol is very well hidden.
