It a looka lika stout.
Pours dark black with an exansive tan/brown head that stays.
Sweet malty smell with a hint of coffee.
Weak flavor at first but develops into a roasted coffee taste with light hop bite. Decent flavor profile, but light. Might be a good crossover beer.
The mouthfeel is light, almost watery. But I'm not sure if that's just because I expect a stout feel when I look at it.
Very drinkable. Light on flavor for a darker beer, but enough hints of "stout-like" flavor to satisfy.
I'll have to try this one again to develop a firm opinion.
