look: 5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- A dark brown body with a toasty tan head. Very good retention and excellent lacing throughout.

S- Musty, toasted malt, very faint hops.

T- Burnt bread, toasted malt, raw cocoa, lager yeast (don't really know any other way to describe it)

M- Medium mouthfeel. Nothing special.

D- Fairly drinkable. I had it ice cold like most lagers, but I'd be interested to try it at a warmer temperature to see what flavors come out.
