3.95/5  rDev +1.3%

A: Pours a clear but opaque very dark brown in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some amber + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to medium to large sized patch of thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted malts with the slightest hint of chocolate and coffee.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of roasted malts with very light flavors of burnt malts, toffee, coffee, and chocolate. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish which does not linger for too long.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Easy to drink and extremely enjoyable to drink - this one is just about sessionable. Alcohol is extremely well hidden and the slightly lighter mouthfeel makes it very easy and pair well with food.
