12oz Bottle from CJ's Potsdam NY for 1.75$
Appearance - Dark brown colour with an above average size fizzy beige/light brown coloured head. It's hard to make out the level of carbonation and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 4 minutes.
Smell - Malts, chocolate, coffee, grains, metallic
Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, light coffee, and a hint of chocolate. There is also some corn/grains and some /roasted/smokey/metallic notes. It ends with a grainy bitter aftertaste.
Overall - Drinkable but nothing groundbreaking by any means. It has a decent amount of bitterness at the end, but it's pretty basic tasting other than that. I wouldn't buy it again, but I wouldn't turn one away if offered.
