A: dark brown; with a moderate pour, got a 3 finger tan head that receded slowly and unevenly; moderate lacing;

S: caramel malt and roasted grain; a little restrained;

T: mocha that morphed quickly to bittersweet chocolate that morphed quickly to smoky coffee that stayed through the finish; moderate bitterness;

M: sticky; medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: a little too much coffee for me and not enough hop flavor or aroma;
