12oz bottle poured hard in to a glass beer mug.

L - black with a creamy sand colored head that left some nice lacing.

S - French roast coffee.

T - French roast coffee is all I get from this right through to the finish.

F - medium bodied with a creamy, nitro feel.

O - worth a try.

Bottled on 4/6/2012; poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Nearly opaque seal brown body with copper/bottle-brown highlights. A thin cream head recedes to a minute yet lasting collar. Delicate sandy lacing, poor retention.

Low roast malt aromatics - faint Nutella-on-toast notes as well.

The roast malt and lactose are in such balance that they nearly cancel one another out - neither sweetness or roast rises above one another in the flavor profile. The result is a clean yet surprisingly one-dimensional brew. Rather dry earthy finish with a hint of plain pasteurized low-fat milk towards the end.

Medium-bodied with somewhat low carbonation.

Less sweet than you might expect, but unfortunately less flavorful as well. Tasty, but unremarkable.
