Black with a slight mahogany hue in the light. Finger and a half down to nothing right quick. Still a jet black beauty. Some smoky aromas, maybe a bit of molasses. Not a big nose overall. Taste is a bit more prominent. Good smoky, roasty presence, but little to no bitterness or hop flavors (also, no date on can). Medium to meh on the mouthfeel... smooth, but a slight off aftertaste. Drinkable, but not right up my alley style-wise. Wouldn't seek this out in particular.

This was my second offering from this brewery,

From a can, it pours a black/very dark brown with a sticky brown head.

It has a decent aroma of roasted malts.

Slightly smoky roasted malts backed with a bit of a hop bite. I like how this one also has a bit of toffee and a hint of coffee and coco.

The mouth is nice with s bit of heft that still manages to be easy to session.

Well done!!
