look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Nearly black, dark brown color with one finger of tan head. Lots of lacing along the glass.

Smell: Big roasted malts with a light touch of coffee and sweetness.

Taste: Dark roasted malts and an initial sweetness please the palate. A bit of coffee, but not overwhelming. Soft hop finish and smooth.

Mouthfeel: Creamy with an average body to it. Very drinkable.

Overall: Straightforward and an easy drinker. Not something that is going to throw a ton of flavor and the palate. Still, tasty and above average.
