Poured from a 22OZ bomber into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a malt and sweet coffee aroma.
Appearance- Coffee black beer with a very small tan head
Taste- Definitely taste the malt, with a sweet fruit backdrop; very tasty
Palate- Full bodied beer with medium carbonation, has a dry finish.
Overall- My favorite Sweetwater offering.

Sweetwater Happy Ending has a thin-to-medium, beige head, and an extremely dark brown appearance, with a thin lacing sheen left on the glass. The aroma is a mix of sweet, citrus fruity, somewhat piney, hop oils, and dark-roasted, licorice malt. Taste is of dark-roasted, almost charred barley malt, black cherry, licorice, pine, some citrus pith, black-strap molasses, and mellow bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavy and syrupy, and Sweetwater Happy Ending finishes semi-wet and surprisingly drinkable.
