3.6/5 rDev 0%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Reddish brown, dark copper color. Carbonated, head doesn't retain well.
S: Caramel, traces of cocoa and toffee. Very nice smell.
T: What I get most is in the finish, and that's lemon. Very citrus finish that takes over a lot of the flavor of the beer. Some caramel malts up front with hints of toffee and no hop flavors that I can detect. Don't really pick up the espresso flavors, citrus/lemon flavors are quite present.
M: Smooth, slightly thin body. Sticky, oily mouthfeel but pretty smooth.
D: I don't understand the lemon addition to this beer. Would have loved the espresso to pop through, and without the lemon. I love the caramel/toffee flavors but the citrus finish just makes for a weird experience. However, it is an easy to drink beer.
