look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown, opaque, with a finger's worth of tan head. Poor head retention. Fairly low visible carbonation.

S: Deep dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, some creamy sweetness and some coffee, but the dark roasted malts dominate. Mild ethanol on the nose as well.

T: Dark roasted malts, including flavors of bitter chocolate, with some lactose sweetness. The overall bittersweet impression lasts into the hang. Not particularly complex or nuanced.

M: Big, thick, heavy body, alcohol noticeable (but not quite detracting). A low amount of carbonation, but has a creamy texture (possible oatmeal influence here?) that reminds me of nitro somehow.

O: Reasonably tasty, though nothing too terribly exciting. Not a lot of complex flavors, but what is there is decent and reasonably constructed. Worth a try, but yet another of the 5 Beers series that failed to live up to (lofty) expectations.
