Pours black, decent sized brown head. Lacing.
Aroma is of malt, coffee, dry roastiness. Though not incredibly present, it does the job during the sip.
The taste is somewhat good -- very roasted, coffee. Malty.
The true downfall of this beer is the mouthfeel. Holy carbonation. This is more carbonated than even most of the light beers and might be the most overcarbonated beer that I've ever tried. It completely ruined the experience for me, and I'll be steering way clear of this. It also severely damaged the drinkability of the beer itself.
It's a shame, too, because the makings are there for a quality brew but the execution just fell fall short. Disappointing.
Serving type: growler
