look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: lovely brown with glimmers of amber through my glass. Poured with wonderful, fluffy head which dissapated quickly. Cream colored, tiny bubbled lacing clings to the glass elegantly.

Smell: leaves something to be desired. Very faint hints of caramel are covered by a standard "beer" smell. Not many hints of what is to come.

Taste&Mouthfeel: oh my, does not disappoint! Super luxerious in caramel and roasted malt flavors. They meld beautifully into one spectacular brew. Medium to even full bodied. Creamy, thick. The beer glides over the tongue and lingers, leaving rich coffee tannin and soft sugars in a wild balance. Mild to medium carbonation, but I must say. There are few beers I think don't need carbonation, this is one that struck the right cord.

Overall: very pleased with this purchse. High recomendation, exceptionally well made for the style. Rated highly and deservedly so. Absolute must try!
