Pours black with with a light brown two-finger head. Good lacing and retention in this one. Aroma leaves a lot to be desired. A bit metallic and yeast. Weird. Didn't carry over into the flavor profile thankfully. The hops are a little off in this one. A bit of a yeasty kick to start off the beer, followed by some weak pine hops. A bit of acidic and not too pleasant citrus hops weaved in there as well. Luckily, the back end of this beer saves it. Nice mellow roasted notes, coffee and unsweetened chocolate and a bit of toffee on the finish round out the beer.

Serving type: can
