3.63/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

looks like coffee. very dark, with a short ,creamy beige head. if you look closely, you can see that it is pretty fizzy.
smell is not very strong, smells like a dark beer, a little sweet
tastes better than the smell. definitely a low abv, but there is a strong crisp taste, quite bitter. it looks and tastes like coffee. the taste is not very unique, it reminds me of other dark beers. but i really like the mouthfeel, chewy, almost buttery.

Serving type: bottle
