3.05/5 rDev -2.2%

Pours an almost opaque deep brown color with garnet highlights and a dense one inch cream head that lingers.
Roast malt, a touch of chocolate, and herbal hops comprise the aroma. There's a bit of grain and coffee grounds present.
Flavor is a bit watery, with roast malt and slightly acrid coffee leading into a somewhat bitter finish.
Body is fairly light, with moderate carbonation.
Overall, a somewhat weak brew. It is pretty one note, but it just seems watered down.
Serving type: bottle

poured from a ~15oz can into a pint glass.
A: Thick beige head that falls slowly and clings to the glass. Nice black color, clear and dark brown along the edges.
S: Bread, very light roast, a little earthy.
T: Smooth malty start, a surprisingly strong bitter kick which lingers. Pretty simple.
M: Light, smooth, creamy carbonation.
O: Nice clean black lager. Easy drinking with a light roasted character and smooth mouth.
Serving type: can
