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

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, slight yeast, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Black Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of wheat, hint of pale malt, and slight hop. Overall, decent beer overall, nothing either mundane or extraordinary.

Poured from the tap at the brewery this had a chocolate brown coloring with a thick foamy head and a ton of lacing.

The scent held a lot of chocolate malt with a bit of caramel. There was some dry floral hoppiness and some barley grains.

The flavors held many of the properties of the scent as the chocolate malt comes out first. The hops then get mingled within the caramel and grains.

The feel is smooth but the carbonation is little high.
