3.5/5 rDev -7.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured into my Ballast Point shaker pint after a long day. A buddy was telling me how much he enjoyed this, so I'm looking forward to giving it a shot.
A: Very dark, almost black with just a bit of brown tinge on the edges of the glass. Very light tan head, just over one finger after a fairly aggressive pour. A great start...looks damn good.
S: Booze. A little malt. A pretty muted nose and not really what I was expecting. Disappointing.
T: Sweet up front with a good amount of cocoa in there. Odd metallic aftertaste that I'm not a big fan of. Not as much booze as I expected after the smell. Thankfully the metallic taste fades as the beer warms up and there's a heightening of the lactose sugar over time. In other words, let it warm up a bit.
M: Good amount of carbonation and pretty smooth at the end. Very creamy feel...nice.
O: I had high expectations for this after my friend's recommendation. Though I wasn't turned off by it, the beer didn't quite do it for me as much as I'd hoped it would. B-/C+.
