look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Tan head. Dark brown nearing black in color. Nice look to it.

Flavor profile is mainly stout like. Roasted malts with some coffee. Chocolate, caramel, and some vanilla. Has a bit of a hop presence.

Mouthfeel: dry and roasted. Medium bodied.

Overall, this is a nice beer with a lot of flavor. Easy to drink and a decent abv.
