Pours deep dark brown, with a dark red effect in places, when held to the light. Looks great. Large foamy tan head.
Smells like some light chocolaty coffee grinds, but there's an off-smell to me which at first i thought was like amaretto, but with more whiffs I just can't pin it. Borders on bitter anise and stale puke. Odd. Am I interpreting the hops negatively?
Tastes better than it smells. There's a vanilla cream flavor, on the sweet side, and it gives way to a pleasant bitter roasted flavor, feels somewhat thin and lightly carbonated. Any mocha or coffee tastes like it gets marginalized/ thinned-out by the hop presence. Pretty dry on the finish.
