Nice brown-red colour that looks almost like root beer. Smell starts out very strong roasted coffee which gradually becomes raisin-y. Taste is very burnt coffee with good nutty hoppiness. Medium body. Nice ale with lots of coffee but wish it were slightly leas burnt-tasting.

Bottle. Copper pour, small tan head, little retention/lace. Aroma of big green apple, green coffee, onion, light chocolate, light toffee. Taste is moderately bitter, green coffee, toffee, light green apple. Palate is average carbonation, slick, light bitter finish. Beside the acetaldehyde, I’m guessing this was an old bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Deep clear burnt-brick red with a fairly large and long-lasting tan thick cap of tightly foamy head. Aroma is wet limestone, medium roast coffee bean malt and alcohol. Taste is ... terrific; only slightly mineral, it’s mostly nutty coffee and dried herb bitterness with alcohol and some slight sharp lactic character. Average body, a bit astringent, nicely carbonated, and a medium roasty/dry bitter finish, interesting mineral aftertaste. Very nice.

Bottle: Poured a light clear brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coffee is pretty intense with loads of floral notes without any astringency. Taste is also dominated by floral coffee notes with light caramelized notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very good offering with great balance and no astringency.
