3.12/5  rDev -1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Body is a dark, brown-amber with slight visibility. Head is thin, off-white, and doesn't retain well.

Smell: A good deal of roasted malt in the nose, along with caramel, and some faint hops.

Taste: Again, roasted and caramel malt, but now I'm getting some coffee as well. Doesn't taste like your typical amber, but all-in-all it's not bad. Finishes with a touch of citrus and some bitter hops.

Mouthfeel: Kinda chewy, with a heavy dosage of carbonation. A smidgen above medium in terms of body. Not all that creamy or cohesive.

Drinkability: This one is a bit weird and a bit heavy. We got a couple pitchers of it last night at DTB, and it was going down okay. Not sure what else to say about this one.
