Michigan

3.88/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This beer pours jet black with a thin tan head that settles fairly quickly into lacing on the sides of my pint glass.

Smell is very nice with cocoa, molasses and roasted barley all finding there way to my nostrils.

Overall the taste is good with the major flavor being baking cocoa. Followed by molasses and a slightly bitter finish that leaves a nice tanginess in your mouth.

Mouthfeel is course and full-bodied with plenty of carbonation.

This beer is another quality brew from SN.
