look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A. A deep dark almost black brown with a tan head that leaves lacing on the sides of the glass.

S. A smoky coffee aroma with some dark chocolate.

T. A decent coffee flavor with some dark bitter chocolate and roasted malts.

M. A creamy mouthfeel with a very smooth finish.

O. A very well balanced beer with great balance. It goes down smoothly and I feel like I could drink a couple of these.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a near black with khaki head which runs down to a thin and persistent layer of silkey lacing.

Smells of roasted barley, coffee, toasted dark bread.

Taste is predominantly roasted malt with hints of coffee. Nothing spectacular.

Mouthfeel thinner than the appearance implies. Slightly overcarbonated.

Overall, a solid brew I'd buy again. Not quite as good as I've been lead to believe though.
