Sweetwater Dank Tank Mean Joe Bean

22 oz bottle in the usual Dank Tank presentation this time with a brown and yellow motif.

The pour is basically black with a few brownish highlights at the extreme edges.

Head is quite small and lacks any retention or lace, a little disappointing.

Nose has a surprisingly lack of coffee element and is mainly dominated by a malty, alcohol note. The mouthfeel is very light which I suppose could be taken one of two ways. Either the beer is very drinkable and easy, or it lacks presence for a beer that with the ABV should really be an Imperial Porter. The tastes lack coffee for me, and only replicates a simple alcohol based malt beer which does not have much presence. Meh …

I dunno, this comes up short for me in virtually all areas. It ought to have more depth, it ought to have more coffee, it ought to have more taste but it doesn’t. Frankly a bit disappointing, a bit light and a bit lazy for the type of beer it should be.
