New Mexico

3.08/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

The beer exits the 330 mL bottle black with some brownish hues toward the edges and a modest amount of foam. The aroma is dark malt with hints of cocoa powder and charcoal. Husky grain is the first things that hits the palate followed by sweet dark malt. Malt dominates the experience and there isn't much of hop presence. The beer is drinkable, nothing wrong here, but I would have liked to see some more complexity.
