3.8/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is black, solid, head is tan 1/2 inch after pour, then dissipates to a good top and leaves some nice lacing on the glass.

Smell is a great mix of toast, bread, biscuit, lighter caramel and chocolate, and roast; hops are light and earthy.

Taste is more roast forward, a little biting from roast and hops, other malts are biscuit and caramel, no chocolate in the flavor; hops are earthy, light pine in flavor.

Mouthfeel is very pleasant, some lingering bitterness from the roast, but good for lighter beer; lingers more on the back of the tongue with lighter flavors on the cheek, nice carbonation and a near creamy feel from the wheat/biscuit malts.

Overall, a very solid brew, great roasty flavor, cleaner hop profile and a creamy undertone form the nose and mouthfeel

3.44/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of coffee, roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, light hops, a touch of smokiness, mild and easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall, not a bad beer, but a little less hoppy than I would have liked for this style.
