2.95/5  rDev -18.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark brown, but still slightly translucent. Edges in light range from light yellow to dark orange. Tan head, almost disappears immediately, very little lacing.

Not much aroma, malt is apparent with roasted coffee scents.

Strong malt flavors are obvious, almost like burnt rye. There isn’t much hop character, but finishes dry.

Lighter bodied with high carbonation.

One, no more. This is an average beer, but it can still be enjoyed.

S: Coffee, burnt , caramel.

T: Some roasted barley, semi sweet, coffee, hint of caramel.

M: To me thin, lack of carbonation.

O: Good beer but not great beer. A feeling that it is lacking.

Though a Black Lager, color is more deep brown. Pours nice with nice head. Head dies down quickly though and carbonation is light. Smell is of coffee and toffee. Mouthful is light. Malty taste with those same roasted qualities of coffee and herbs but not real strong though and body is light. Easy drinking but only partially satisfying.

Poured from bottle to beer mug.

Pours jet black with an off white head that retreats to the ring of the glass and then disappears.

Smells is mostly coffee and burnt sugar. There is a little off smell there though. Perhaps from fermentation a touch too warm.

Taste is decent. The hops flavor is pretty good and the coffee and earthy flavors at the end are a nice touch. The hops have a good earthy feel and taste, but there taste like some off flavors from the fermentation.

I was hoping for a better brew here. A little disapointing though.
