3.72/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep dark muddy brown with an ample tan head that lingers.

Mild hop punch, slightly medicinal and herbal. Smells of sour yeast and roasted malt.

Taste is roasted malt - chocolate, coffee - with a slight spicy note of rye, a slightly bitter hop herbal hit. This is a solid beer, but nothing stands out.

No head. Descent roasted and yeast flavor. Light body. Low carbonation.

Pours clear, dark brown in color, with minimal head. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, and light chocolate. Sweet, roasty with light body. To me this beer just fell flat. Was expecting more body for the roastiness. For me this is a huge pass.
