look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a deep, dark, black color. Off-white foamy head dissipates quickly to a 1mm head. Some nice lacing.
Weak smell. Perhaps some sweet malt and just a hint of coffee bean. Not much going on.
Sweet, malty, roasted coffee, with a little semi-sweet bitterness in the end. Not too sweet, with a coffee and chocolate aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is creamy up front, smooth in the middle, and some bitterness in the finish. Good carbonation in the finish.
A nice holiday beer. Not an every day beer for me.
