3.63/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

500ml bottle poured into a rocks glass (sadly the only glass available in my hotel room so take that with a grain of salt)
A: Very dark brown with a 1/2-finger head
S:Roasted coffee beans, cocoa powder
T: Dark malt, watered down iced coffee. I can definitely tell it's a stout but it's missing a full-bodied character most stouts have
M: Smooth but a bit thin for the style
O: This has all the right components but tastes a bit watered down. Definitely sessionable and by no means bad, though
