look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A. Aggressive poor 1 inch of white/tan head that holds its shape. Very little carbonation. Dark brown but still allows light to get through.
S. Roasted malt.
T. Tastes as smells with very very light hints of coffee and dark chocolate.
M. Watery, dry.
O. The taste is a good start but very watered down. Less than average buzz for 5.6% ABV.
