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

A: 4.25 Looks nice and viscous out of the bottle. Super dark brown, almost black with an off-white head that dissipates quickly.

S: 3.75 Roasted coffee and malt dominate the nose with strong vanilla coming right behind. Coffee smells pretty earthy (maybe I let this one go a bit too long; perhaps better fresh?).

T: 3.5 Bitter coffee and roasted malt. Vanilla sweetness is in the middle with more bitterness at the end.

M: 4.25 Really nice carbonation and pretty rich and thick. Well done here.

O: 3.75 Probably need to revisit this one fresh (or even age it longer to see if the bitterness of the coffee mellows out a bit). It’s pretty good, but fresh it might be more balanced and interesting.

Serving type: bottle
