3.48/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

pours a very clear brown but once in the glass it was opaque brown almost black with about 3/4 in head and some decent foam action.

very grainy smell and some sweetness... mostly grainy. maybe some yeast notes towards the end with slight floral hop notes.

grainy taste to match the aroma. some sweet malt at first and then slightly bitter but not that strong... maybe a toffee flavor followed by light hops...

thought it would be a little thicker.. medium to light bodied with light carbonation.

overall a good beer i might look around some more before picking this one up again but i like alot of variety to begin with.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Fairly light pour, clear deep brown with minimal head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma is chocolatey and nutty, with a hint of roast. Deep caramel emerges. More deep chocolate and bitter roast, with toffee notes and a slightly bitter finish. Lots of chocolate.
