4/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
(A) Pours dark maroon, almost brown. Totally opaque. Has a very thin head on it.
(S) There is something different going on in the aroma, I still can't quite put my finger on what it is. Smells of coffee, but almost with a bit of chai in it. A bit like old coffee grounds and toasted grains. Some biscuit.
(T) The flavor has a lot of the java and coffee flavors in it. A decent blend of mocha, coffee, roasted malts, cereal, bread, and a bit of caramel.
(M) It's on the lighter side of full body. Ends really dry, almost chalky.
(O) It's good, but it's got a weird smell and flavor (amongst all of the notable and good flavors) that I can't figure out. Almost like a bit of funk in there. It's weird, but a pretty good brew.

A - This beer is very dark. When held to the light only a faint ruby glow is perceptible. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head. There is a little lacing.
S - I smell some coffee, but it is not strong at all. There really isn't much else.
T - I get a some coffee and roasted malt. There is a mildly bitter finish.
M - Medium with low carbonation.
O - Full disclosure: this beer has two things working against it. This is my second beer of the evening. The first was a Peruvian Morning with huge coffee smell and taste. This beer lacks compared but still has its own merits. Second, this bottle was purchased in Massachusetts about ten months ago. I may have held on to it for too long. It is decent but not as good as the score indicates. i will revisit given the opportunity for a fresher bottle and a cleaner palate.
