Visual: Pours dark cola brown with an INSANE amount of ultra creamy long-lasting root beer head, lots of micro steady streams around the perimeter.

Nose: caramel malts with some chocolate and roasted coffee. (lvl-8)-pungency

Attack: creamy-bubbly head, fizzy crisp tingly

Mid-palate: continual fizzy-bloated, background light sourness, (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) milky chocolate, roast coffee, root beer, dark malt

Finish: roasted exhale, burpy, light burnt bitterness, soft roasted finish.

Summary: Good sweet roasted malt entry and clean finish. Overall satisfied but leaves you feeling a bit bloated due to the creaminess.
