3.71/5 rDev -5.4%
Poured into a standard pint glass: color is black with dark brown edges; head is light tan, starting as a 1/2 inch thick top then dissipating to a ring, no lacing.
Smell is smooth roasted and some chocolate malts, hint of bread, but no wheat, enticing; hop notes are simple, earthy, grassy.
Taste is very clean, roasted malt with with some bready undertones (pumpernickel?), lighter sweetness, then transitions to a dry bitterness, not cloying but clean, hops are helping the bitter roasted malt to dry the flavor out in a good way.
Mouthfeel starts out pleasant, slightly sweet and crisp, but the carbonation seems to catch up and bite at the tongue too harshly
Overall, a very, very good tasting beer with enticing qualities. mouthfeel seems to detract some, but good presentation and aroma.
