    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a pint glass. There is no freshness date on the bottle.

    Appearance: The body has a nice dark chocolaty brown color with a light brown, chocolate milk shake like head on top. The head has very good retention makes tons of thick light brown lacing on the glass.

    Smell: Its aroma has a mix of leafy hops, minerals and smoky roasted grain.

    Taste/Mouth Feel: The flavor has hints of coffee with cream, some smoke, sweet roasted gain, leafy hops and a light dusting of dark coco powder. It has a nice medium body with a silky smooth texture and soft carbonation. It is slick but not overly thick or cloying at all.

    Notes: There is a lot of flavor packed into this little beer that has only 3.8v. This could be a nice dark session beer.
