look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - One of the coolest looking beers of all time: The nitro surge after the pour, the perfect creamy, tan head, nice dark color. Perfection.

Smell - Odd, slightly off-putting sweetness, and faint coffee. Like if you finished a cup of coffee, let the cup sit for an hour, then sniffed your cup.

Taste - Watery weak coffee, slight roasted malt taste. Quick acidic bitter bite that hits the back of your mouth every other sip or so.

Mouthfeel - Surprisingly light and watery unless you get some of the creamy head in your gulp, in which case you get this satisfying creamy medium bodied feel. Low carbonation.

Overall - Looks awesome in a glass, but when it comes to taste and mouthfeel I am disappointed. An OK stout, nothing offensive but nothing amazing either. Even with the light body and low abv, I wouldn't want to have two in a row.
