Pours black with a one finger tan head. The aroma has coffee and dark roasted malt.

The taste is mostly bitter with coffee and dark roasted malt. There is little to no sweetness to balance the bitterness. At 4.9 % abv, I didn't expect very much malt, but it would have been nice to have had more than this.

Light bodied for the style with average carbonation. Has a bitter aftertaste from the coffee and dark roasted malt. Somewhat disappointing in my opinion.

Thanks to haveanother1 for sending this over via trade.

A: Opaque black with 3 fingers width of bubble tan colored head. Bubbles settle and it becomes a dense 1 finger width that has great retention. Leaves a sheet of lacing down the side of the glass.

S: Oatmeal and lactose like heavy cream, a bit herbaceous, subtle coffee and chocolate.

T: Roasty and grassy/herbaceous. Oatmeal, a more pronounced coffee than was present in the aroma, lactose and a subtle semi-sweet bakers chocolate.

M/D: Nice smoothness, mouthfeel on the lighter side, carbonation moderate, drinkability is average.

O: Solid brew, nothing spectacular, but a nice Sunday morning beer to get my homebrew day started.
