look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Well it's certainly black with a decent sized beige head. As the head thins out there is some lacing left behind.

Aroma: Grapefruit, faint grape a touch of toffee way in the back. Roasted hops and chocolate malts are scattered.

Taste: Creamy mouthfeel along with minor touch of mocha, roasted hops. Grape in the back chocolate here and there with notes of grapefruit as well.

Notes: It's not too bad it's very drinkable I thought it might be a little hoppier but it's still tasty. Cheers.
