3.77/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Poured solid brown with off white/tan head
Smell: licorice, malts (light), slight hops, carob
Taste: hint of malt, and an odd (but not unpleasant) salty, metallic taste akin to an oyster stout. Well balanced flavors of malt, hop though at an intensity level more similar to a brown ale or lager. Ends sweet – salty with a clean finish
Mouthfeel: heavier than a lager, but thinner than your typical porter, hint of carbonation
Overall: a pleasant mix of attributes from a good lager, the maltiness of a porter and the saltiness of an oyster stout. Good with chicken, bbq or any grilled meats – palate cleansing and not so powerful as to overwhelm your meal.

1/14...pours very dark brown with some white foam. Coffee nose, faint, little bitter. Strong coffee bitter flavor. Some grittiness. Smooth chocolate coffee all around. Very good.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dark chestnut; medium frothy tan head, medium lasting, little lacing

Smell: Faint smells of everything; roasted malts, dried fruit and some coffee

Taste: Sweet malts on the start; bitter roasted grains come in pretty quickly; finishes pretty sweet

Mouthfeel: fairly thin with zippy carbonation; finishes almost like a soda

Remarks: decent, but nothing overly special
