Let me just preface this review by saying that this beer nearly ruined my night.
Here's the lowdown:
Standard 12oz bottle into a properly-sized mug. Pours a deep black with a lovely tan head. Stays pretty well. Absolutely no complaints here.
Smell: Let's start with the good. Some good coffee notes here. Now the bad: overall smells like dog food.
Taste: Unfortunately, like the second part of the smell. Coffee aftertaste, but mostly dog food. And it doesn't go away. Oh no. 1/4 of a glass -- all I could stomach drinking -- and I could taste nothing but that horrible, horrible flavour for an hour. It took me an hour and much water and bread to lose that flavour. Oh lord. It hurts. Finish is rather sweet with some hints of molasses as well. If it were only dry. If only.
From here, I'll stop. The beer is terrible. I highly suggest you avoid it.
