T-roasted malts and caramel sweetness with a little hop character, not much bitter flavor

3.3/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep dark amber with little to no head and a large amount of disproportionation. Smell is malt forward with notes of caramel in the back ground, as well as notes of lemon and orange rind, with coffee notes on the back end of the bite. The taste is ok, with forward dark roasted malt and some mild chocolate notes, but nothing really pops beyond that. Some acidity is present on the rear palate. Mouthfeel is light bodied with small crisp bubbles.
