look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - poured from a 341ml bottle into a pint glass. The color is an opaque dark brown/black with a dissipating beige head.

S - strong coffee and some dark chocolate

T - coffee, with a finish that mixes coffee bean and dark chocolate

M - medium carbonation and liquid lager feel. The finish is sticky at first then becomes dry.

D - This is a very interesting beer. It feels like a lager when you sip, yet it has stout flavors and some stout mouthfeel (escpecially in the finish). Very refreshing.

New to OK Spring, but I bought a sampler pack that has 3 others in it as well. I prefer dark beers so I felt compelled to grab this one first.

A: Good, nice and dark, not see through but when the glass is held up to the light you can see some nice dark red/brown hues coming out from a very dark brown, nearly black overall appearance. the fluffy tan head was nice at the pour, but within a couple of minutes it was down to a rim that remained throughout the entire glass.

S: roasted coffee and choclate malts are the most pronouced, there is a slight berry smell alongside with a bit of hops.

T: good, it's dark and malty with very slight bitterness. the roast is quite enjoyable and there are choclate undertones with hops also being noticable.

M: honestly a little thin and a little too 'fizzy' for my liking, but it did thicken up some, but initially was very thin and the carbonation is strong.

D: not bad, i enjoyed it and would purchase again.

Great looking dark black. Lets some light through. Can smell the roastiness right away. A little coffee too. Good malt flavor, hop bitterness comes through late. Carbonation is a little high, but still very smooth. Not heavy at all. Pretty good overall
