look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12-oz bottle into porter/stout glass

A - 2 fingers of light tan foam over a dark ruby/brown body

S - chocolate, coffee, grainy

T - black coffee, dark chocolate, very slight hints of cherry and vanilla, almost smoky toasted malt flavors, more bitterness than sweetness from the roasted malts

M - lighter body than expected, high amount of prickly carbonation

O - I expected this to be better. I would drink it again, but I wouldn't buy it.
