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

Appearance- pleasant finger and a half of aromatic pebbled beige head, medium toast brown with a bit of transparency

Smell- toasted caramel malts and a touch of earthy hop, toffee and light coffee

Taste- malt sweetness comes in the form of a toasted breadiness and there's a presence of caramel and coffee, the balance of hop crisp comes on the later half and rear of the palate

Mouthfeel- super smooth, full bodied, carbonation on the back of the tongue

Overall- the malt prominence deserves worthy praise and is well balanced, not too big, not too light, good for a few

pours cola black, chocolate head, dissipates quickly.

dark chocolate and roasted malts, light light citrus twist.

very roasty and chocolate through out. bitterness with a slight complimenting backbone. light citrus hops.

smooth with a mild carbonation, micro bubbles add body. light and easy.

pretty good, i like it.
