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

thanks to gon8888 for the very good extra and knocking out one of my wants!
split with newk340
a- black, thin tan foam that stays as a ring for about half of the duration
s-big dark coffee, dark malts, but mostly dark coffee
t-dark coffee grounds, almost bitter burnt chocolate in flavor. 90% coffee, 10% beer.
m-pretty bubbly, tingly on the tongue. not very thick.
d-interesting. a bit heavy on the coffee for me. i like mostly beer with coffee notes, but this was the opposite. either way, glad i tried it and worth looking into.
