look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

22 Ounce brown bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Dark/Black in appearance with a few fingers of light brown or tan head.

Smell: Well there is a roasted scent but there was an unexpected earthy almost hoppy/piney smell as well. There was a little bit of sweetness but not much.

Taste: Well it seems like there are a lot of things going on in this. There is a slight fruity taste at first that goes into a hoppy bitterness that then goes into a sweet maltiness that finishes off with the roasted coffee type bitterness. The hoppy bitterness does remain afterwards too.
