3.55/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance - Pours a very dark red (nearly black) with a fluffy tan head. Minimal head retention. Moderate to heavy lacing.
Smell - In order of strength to my nose: coffee, bitter chocolate, toasted malt, and caramel.
Taste - I taste everything I can smell. A very malt heavy brew with a touch of sweetness from what I'm guessing are the hops. I did not initially like the taste but it is growing on me. Aftertaste of black coffee.
Mouthfeel - Very smooth. An almost dry finish.
Drinkability - Despite the lighter ABV, this one is more of a sipper than a drinker.
Serving type: bottle
