4.08/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a large snifter.

A - Pours a surprisingly dark brown, almost black with chocolate brown highlights. Builds a nice 1.5-fingered light tan, almost off-white head that has decent retention. Can't see much carbonation here through the opaque body. Nice traces of lacing all around the glass, especially on the side opposite the drinking.

S - Smell is very pleasant. Lightly roasted malts and smooth coffee mixed with nice chocolate tones. Certainly malt oriented with almost no sign of hops or alcohol.

T - Taste fortunately is loyal to the nose almost to a T. Very sweet malt profile up front lets the coffee and chocolate really explore the mouth. A little appearance from the hops at the very end that blends nicely into a smooth alcohol warming. In fact, this whole beer can be summed up as: "smooth". Nothing overwhelming or abrasive here.

M - Mouthfeel is light and airy given the formidable appearance of this beer. Roasted malts and coffee linger throughout and in the long finish.

D - Drinkability is high. Easy drinking, smooth flavor, and low alcohol make this one a joy to drink and if I could get this closer to me, it would be a regular in the fridge.

If I could liken this to one beer in particular, it would be a light version of Troeg's Java Head.
