look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

The color is less brown and more a dark or brassy copper, thin in the pour, with a relatively thick foam.

Nice strong scent of chocolate malt, barley, grain, some nuttiness, a little smoke, dry cocoa powder and even some light coffee.

The flavor is far more weak than the nose and not nearly as complex. Dry chocolate maltiness, light roasted nut, touch of barley and some mint, anise or carraway.

The feel is overly thin and watery, dry and even a bit flat; despite its freshness and obvious carbonation.

Better than average but not better than so many that ATG have done.
