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

on tap at beer study in chapel hill. shaker.

pours a pitch black with a mild beige head. smell is malty and chocolatey. good , typical scent. the taste holds true with coffee and dark chocolate notes. body is a tad lighter than expected. low carbonation

overall good, body could use some work but the flavor is there.

A - black with a thin lacing of brown head

S - dark fruit, some licorice, roasted malts

T - roasted malts, coffee, dark fruit, rather bitter finish

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a decent beer though it's a bit more bitter than I would have liked. The roasted malts are impressive. They lend a few different notes which make each sip intriguing. I'm not sure when I'll ever get another Huske offering, but I won't turn it down.
