3.1/5  rDev -12.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle.

Pours almost opaque black with brownish edging and barely a whisp of tan foam on the surface. A placid surface with zero lacing for the duration of the glass.

Aromatics are a fairly standard blend of roasted malt, light char, coffee, and chocolate. All the components are there but fairly pedestrian in nature.

Light to medium bodied with a thin mouthfeel. A bit watery.

Light roast, mild bakers chocolate, hints of coffee and black malt on the palate. Zero hopping and low bitterness. Alcohol is non-present.

Finishes quick and watery with light roast and chocolate.

This is a very average-at-best stout. By todays standards I would say below average.
