4.25/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours an opaque extremely dark brown approaching jet black in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and faint dark cola brown + chestnut brown colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall tan head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thin film covering a little more than 75% of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of freshly ground coffee, freshly brewed coffee, mocha, and dark chocolate/cacao nibs over the top of light to moderate aromas of dark roasted malts + toasted oats with a very light amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of dark roasted malts + toasted oats with a very light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of freshly ground coffee, freshly brewed coffee, mocha, and dark chocolate/cacao nibs. Light flavors of earthy hops. Light to moderate amounts of lingering coffee bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol (and an extremely low ABV) and a smooth mouthfeel. Very enjoyable and may be the perfect breakfast beer that I have encountered thus far with great coffee/breakfast flavors and a sessionable ABV.
