look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle. Freshness date of March 2009.
Pours a nearly black color with a dark tan head. The head is quite small.
Aroma is pretty nice. Sort of sweet with a molasses like smell, some caramel and chocolate malt smells come through.
Taste is quite malty. Lots of roasted malt flavor. Some slight burnt taste too. There is a light sweetness that turns slightly bitter. Nice malty finish. Mouthfeel is decent. Drinkability is pretty good.
Overall this one isn't bad, but nothing super fantastic.
