12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Best before date is October 24th. Pours dark brown with a half inch of light brown head that quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing. Interesting rich malt aroma. Chocolate and toffee with just a hint of coffee. Medium body and low carbonation. Seems a bit heavy for only 5.6% abv but the finish is clean enough to still make it easy to drink. Very smooth texture. The malt lacks some personality on the palate though. A little bit of coffee flavor comes through but other than that its just medium roasted malt taste. I would much rather this were a little lighter. It might make a good session beer then.
