From bottle into a pint glass it looks very dark with a pretty good head.
Odor is of malt, coffee and perhaps some toffee/caramel.
Taste is overall good. It is a little carbonated and that seems to take a little away. Malt and coffee notes are present just as with the aroma. Minor undertones of caramel also come through.
Mouth feel is a little less than what you expect from a beer this dark. More carbonated than smooth.
Overall it is still a very good beer. It just has some faults.
Serving type: bottle
