3.33/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into my duvel tulip

A- pours deep brown, appears black, but on closer inspection is more dark brown. Little film of a head, and very little lacing,

S- floral hops mixed with crystal malts, smells good, almost perfumy

T- roasted up front developing into floral hops and finishing with a touch of pine.

M. Light with low carbonation, almost watery, could deffinatley use more body.

O- not a bad beer, the wateryness kinda makes it a bit sub par, although it is drinkable.... Not a bad smell or flavor, but it's missing a few important aspects that would
Make this decent beer great!

3.64/5  rDev 0%
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
