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

A: Pours a dark brown with large tan head. Settles down to a pretty decent head. Not much lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Also a nutty hint of caramel. Sweet, strong and impressive.

T/M: Almost completely like the aroma. Sweet with a strong roasted malt flavor. medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Goes down smooth with a somewhat malty aftertaste.

O: One of the better Black/Tan's I've had, that was bottled from a brewery. Tastes good and has excellent session ability. Gotta drink it or it will go flat.

Cheers!!

Serving type: growler
