Deep brown, head settles to nothing after a few minutes. Nutty, subtle vanilla aroma. Taste is nutty, malty, vanilla notes. Thin body, which is infinitely drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Rich brown. Translucent. Bubbly. Not much head or retention though. Amber highlights

Aroma: Bready malts. Some chocolate. Toastiness

Taste: Subdued chocolate with some coffee bitterness. Water. Some breadiness. Not very complex. Tastes watered down

Mouthfeel: Slick coffee. Not much carbonation. Watery

Overall: Average. Maybe slightly above par. A nice medium bodied beer but not much else. Not a bad anytime beer but far from special
