look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

From a bottle, poured into a pint glass. Poured dark brown, nearly black with 1 finger of off-white head. The smell was roasted malts, burnt bread, and a very subtle hop. The taste was all lager, very bready with some roasted malts. A little watery with a decently long finish. Very average to me.
