A wonderful aroma of coffee permeated the first sniff along with subtle hop flavors. The color was a medium-dark brown that featured a tan head that dissipated very quickly. It had flavors of roasted and burnt malts accentuated with a light hop bitterness. The roasted malts worked well with the light hop bittering and neither overwhelmed the other but instead balanced each other nicely. The body of this beer was a little lighter than usual, and the carbonation was also very low, however it is fine for this style. It had a nice smooth finish of roastiness in the aftertaste.
