look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Definitely a decent beer I would drink again. Color is a very dark thick brown, almost black. 1" light caramel color head that dissipated slowly over about 5 minutes and left thin lacing. Smell was chocolate with some fruity elements. Texture was very thick and almost creamy, which made it seem sweeter than it actually was. Taste had overarching chocolate tones, with nutty, sweet malt, elements of coffee and a dry citrus aftertaste. Very low carbonation.
