Pours dark black with a one finger dark tan head. The aroma has cocoa, roasted malt, and some earthiness.

Tastes mostly bitter. There is grapefruit peeling, dark roasted malt, and cocoa. The taste might be a little too bitter for me. Needs more sweetness for balance.

Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Has a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Not a bad beer.

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.
