4.03/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours dark brown, almost black. A large mocha head left plenty of spidery lacing.

Smell is of dark coffee and tobacco.

Taste is similar to the smell. Plenty of dark roasted malt with coffee and tobacco notes.

Texture is stellar. A medium body with some chew. Some carbonation and a bite.

A very surprising great feeling from such a low abv. My favorite part of the beer. Flavors are big and bold. It's not an imperial, so I can't expect more complexity, but it's well done.

DOA
