look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Deep brown to black with a small, one finger head, that dissipates slowly at first, but lingers at the end. A small amount of carbonation and very little lacing.
S: Strong smell of roasted coffee beans up front, no hoppiness to speak of.
T: A very balanced first taste that moves into a kind of burnt malty finish. Not nearly as unpleasant as it sounds.
M: Very smooth, especially up front. Not much carbonation and very little hop finish.
D: High. Not overwhelmingly good, but better than I remember it being the first time around. Very smooth, almost velvety, with no overwhelming chocolate or coffee flavors (although strong coffee smells). A great example of what honestly isn't my favorite style.
