look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours deppe maroon and black with a dark tan head that leaves lots of lace on the glass.
Aroma of rich chocolate, roasted coffee and a hint of alcohol.
Flavors of chocolate and midly roasted coffee and barley. Fairly subdued flavors and minimal resiny bitterness.
Mouthfeel is very smooth and sweet malt, almost bull with just a hint of roasted notes and bittering. Not very lively on the palate.
Drinkability is average. Some decent flavors but kind of one-dimensional and somehat "flat," not bad just not memorable.

Serving type: bottle

Black as a "Lump of Coal". No light passes through. Has a mocha brown head. There is a good chocolaty aroma with just a hint of coffee in the background. The taste seems more sweetly vanilla than chocolate. Only in the finish is there a nice coffee bitterness.
