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

Appearance: pretty nondescript, or rather nothing distinguishable.
Smell: again, a hint of tea and burnt toast, but understated to be sure.
Taste: as the nose suggests.
Overall: a beer I would have been much more impressed with enforce discovering founders, dfh etc. not bad by any means but merely passable.

Dark brown pour, large bubbles, decent lacing. Not many overarching scents, soy and a hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel is rather smooth, though nothing special. Lots of malt in the taste, and a bit of chocolate rounds out this average brew. It ends with a strange aftertaste I can't quite put my finger on.
