pours out like a cola, dark some what see thru body with a big bubbly head that settles real quick. leaves some lacing. smell consists of grains and a slight roasted scent. taste is a little more exciting. roasted malts come thru leaving a weak coffee flavor in the background. mouthfeel is real thin and watery. lots of carbonation. overall this was a decent attempt at the style but could use bolder flavors to grab your attention.

Pretty disappointed when I got home and found out this is an alias beer

Looked ok. Dark, 2 finger - tan head, lacing is ok.

I can smell a little roast scent in there but just barely

Taste is woody, charcoalish. A little coffee.

Mouthfeel is where this beer loses me. Thin and watery. No body, but they try to make up for it with over carbonation.

Unimpressive.
