look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Color - black with copper hue. Thin white head quickly faded into light skiff. A bit murky.

Aroma: Diacetyl. Light nutty roast, hint of molasses.

Taste: Apple hiding behind roast. Molasses, resiny-grassy hops.

Mouth: Dry and tingly. Thin-ish ... not creamy.

Overall: Sorry to say I'm a bit disappointed. Not as much balance and interplay with flavors as I think should have. Astringent.

Serving type: bottle

Thin tan head when poured that dissipates almost immediately. Nutty coffee scent, does smell very much like a stout, and flavors like a stout. I feel like it's missing something but I can't put my finger on it. Not a very complex flavor, but not bad either. Strong coffee notes stand out the most, little bit of carbonation, hint of hops. It's alright.
