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

08.05.05 bottle from batch 7008 making this beer a year four months and 10 days old. I hope it's held up at just six percent...

Opaque brown... pretty much black. There's a couple of thin rays of red shining through the extremities. One finger head after an aggressive pour. Some webby lacing that disappears after ten or fifteen minutes.

Bitter chocolate nose and a slight nuttiness. It's a nice toasty aroma.

Smooth milky roasted coffee taste that's dry and nutty in the finish.

Good beer that's held up surprisingly well but lacks overall complexity. Many thanks to BeerBeing for this one.
