look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I must say, now that I've tried this stuff, I think it's a little overrated.

A: Good black appearance with a small head and little lacing.

S: Smells spectacular. Molasses, caramel, malts, etc, and plenty of em.

T: The taste simply isn't as good as the smell would lead you to believe. I think it's a little too bitter and would prefer a little more sweetness. Other than that, it's well balanced and tastes great, very clean, but the strength could be significantly increased, in my opinion. I feel like this beer has arrived at a medium that is comfortably boring.

M: Too carbonated, plain and simple. I do not appreciate fizziness in a beer of this style.

D: Moderately drinkable.

Overall, I think this beer is highly overrated as there are plenty of other, better options in this arena around this price. I would still buy it again if the selection is poor but I have lots to choose from in my area.
