Poured into a perfect pint.
3.25 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is lacking, but a short ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: This smells great! The chocolate and molasses mesh with the roasted barley to make something special. It integrates so well. The lactose then offers a little twang to the mix. The powerful, yet supple roast is balanced by malty sweetness with caramel and even a touch of dark fruits.
3.25 T: Unfortunately the nose is much deeper and better integrated than the taste. Still, it's good, just not great. Moderate to heavy roastiness enhances the hop bitteness. The sweetness doesn't quite balance it out. The chocolate, molasses, lactose combo seems out of balance with the roast. Somewhat of an ashy taste on finish. Herbal and citrusy hops.
3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. It's creamy, but in a not creamy way. It's hard to explain why I'm not a huge fan of this mouthfeel.
3.25 D: The nose got me interested, but unfortunately this beer falls just north of average.
