3.2/5  rDev -14%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours black, maybe a bit ruby hue, with no head at all...The label lies! Sits as still as coffee with no carbonation bubbling or lacing.

Smell is promising. Notes of caramel and malt. Bit of Bavarian hops. Smells very authentic.

Deep caramel malts, coffee, chocolate dominate the taste of this beer. Its not a huge beer but plenty flavorful. Great carbonated mouthfeel...much different than how it looks! Good and bubbly.

Not bad, its just too bad that it didn't have a nice big head. Oh well, still good!
