Misc.: N/A

Poured a dark mahogany semi-clear color with one finger of khaki tan head. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention.

Smelled sugary malts, roasty malts, toast, nutty, caramel, toffee, cough syrup and faint coffee.

Tasted quite bland. Nutty, toffee, caramel, roasty, toasty and slightly more bitter than the nose.

Medium-to-full body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish.

Nothing special about this beer. I probably even overrated it a bit. Won’t try it again on purpose.
