Appearance - 4.5/5
When I first cracked the can open, it fizzed out a bit. Quite disappointed about that. It's been sitting still in my fridge for at least a week. Anyway, very dark ruby-black. Lots and lots of bubbly dark tan foam. It does look appealing, I must admit. Eventually the head dies down to a thinnish layer.

Smell - 2.5/5
Metallic, perhaps a bit of cocoa. Some other strange smell which reminds me of manure. Not a great smell. Luckily I don't mind manure smell that much. And the smell is mostly really the metallic.

Taste - 3/5
My first reaction is that the taste is metallic. This is the first beer I've reviewed from a can, so perhaps canned beer always has that metallic aspect?? There is definitely some cocoa aspects, but not nearly as strong as I was expecting. Overall, not something I'd want again.

Mouthfeel - 3.25/5
Smooth, medium-high amount of medium intensity carbonation. Medium-full in body.

Overall - 3/5
I got this beer due to a recommendation from a friend. Turns out we have different sets of taste buds.

Seriously dark brown with a dark tan head. Retention is weak, drops to a thin film in a minute. Leaves scattered lacing behind.
Smell is toast, cardboard, coffee.
Taste is toasted malt, cardboard, coffee, light vanilla. Decent but no more.
Medium body, light effervescence. Drying finish.
