I like this style. It's not a stout but there are some similarities. A little bit bitter but quite easy to drink, very flavorful. Very nice !

Black pour with khaki foam. Coffee, sweet banana and clove notes. Coffee bean, chocolate malt and dry hop flavors. Dry medium mouthfeel, dry hop finish. Some astringency but alcohol otherwise masked well.

Appearance: It has a nice dark brown color to it. It has a nice creamy beige head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of pine resins, some citrus, roasted malts, chocolate and sweet caramel/toffee.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some bitter pine resins, citrus, some earthiness, roasted malts, dark chocolate and some faint caramel.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

Bottle: Poured a dark black color ale with a nice large off-white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of bitter roasted malt is quite dominant with some strong dry hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by dry bitter roasted malt notes with some deep citrus oriented hoppy notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. I have hard time understanding how this beer is rated so high. It is an OK version of a style that I don’t particularly like but not sure what really stands out. Also, the Saaz hops are very hard to pick-up in this mix.
