pours a lovely dark black with barely any head, a bit of tan around the edges of where the head should be. Smells heavenly, like sweet coffee on christmas morning. dark chocolate dominates the nose.
tastes a bit watery up front, with a bit of dark roasted malt and chocolate. A slight hop bitterness, which is heightened by the carbonation. A bit tart with a clean finish. The aftertaste that lingers reminds you a bit of wood, but that is all. mouthfeel is a bit odd with a very effervescent feel. A bit watery as well. It is quite smooth and easy going however.
A good looking beer that smells perfect, but can't hold up in the taste realm. I bet this would be a mind blowing beer on cask!!
As I sip this beer it seems to be all over the place, one time it tastes great, the next it seems a little funny. i will certainly have to try it again.
