12oz Bottle from CJ's Potsdam NY for 2$
Appearance - Dark black/brown colour with an average size fizzy light brown coloured head. It's hard to make out the level of carbonation and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 4 minutes.
Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains
Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and a hint of chocolate/coffee. There is also some grainy notes and a bit of a burnt/smokey flavour. It finishes with a lingering burnt aftertaste.
Overall - A nice appearance but the taste is just a little too unbalanced for me. It starts out smooth but ends with a sharp bitter flavour. Still a good beer but not as good as I was expecting.
