look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

During the pour it seemed like more of a stout, but this definetely tastes like a lager; it's lighter and clearer than expected;
Plus the mouthfeel makes that even clearer; not a big fruitiness, maybe some low dark fruit/berries; the malts are nicely roasted, giving off aromas of (very) dark bread, then going to coffee notes, lower strong cocoa powder also; decent nuttiness, also some dark chocolate sweetness, with faint candi sugar/licorice;
The bitterness isn't provided only by the roast, but also by some somewhat herbal hops, really nice and dry in the finish;
I'm conflicted, there are a lot of stout (going to porter) elements, with a lager body, but it fits nicely, it makes a "fresher", more sessionable dark beer
