look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: not exactly black but close, more of a cola. Decent tan head on the pour that mostly dissipates.
Smell: some light hops in the nose, no really distinguishing characteristics. Some light malt.
Taste: a bit more here. Some pleasing hop bite with a light malt in the background.
Overall: I think we're spoiled these days with all the amazing beers. This one ain't amazing but it's a decent brew.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Well, Three Heads would be about right as this beer pours "all head" with a slowly rising coffee liquid at the base.; of course, the retention is great - in fact, this head sticks to the top of the pint glass like a glacier

Smell: Roast, citrus peel and a hint of mint

Taste: Roasty, up front, with a burgeoning bitterness that adds some citrus peel, coffee grinds and a hint of mint, in the middle; after the swallow, the taste flattens out, bringing some earthy mineral tones, though the bitterness persists in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body (slightly thin) and overly fizzy

Overall: There are some promising elements to this beer both in the aromatics and some of the flavor elements but overall it seems to miss the mark
