Appearance: not exactly black but close, more of a cola. Decent tan head on the pour that mostly dissipates.
Smell: some light hops in the nose, no really distinguishing characteristics. Some light malt.
Taste: a bit more here. Some pleasing hop bite with a light malt in the background.
Overall: I think we're spoiled these days with all the amazing beers. This one ain't amazing but it's a decent brew.
