3.3/5 rDev -10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.
A - pours an oily black. No transparency here. With an agressive pour into the glass, I get about a two finger tan head. Speckly lacing on the glass as it goes down. Retains a bit of foam on the surface of the liquid all the way through.
S - roasted coffee and milk chocolate mixed w/ caramel malts. Fairly sweet aroma - not as bitter as I was expecting. It's quite delicate actually.
T - more bitter than the aroma. The roasted coffee and bitter chocolate flavors stand out more here. Dry on the finish. A bit of roasted coffee aftertaste. Not much more to say - those flavors are there, but none really jump out at me in a positive way. They're just kind of there. Not bad, but not great either.
M - medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
O - overall, better than Guiness Draught if I recall correctly. Nothing spectacular, but would work in a pinch.
