Bottle. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Roast, some earthiness, ’burnt’, coffee and caramel. I love coffee beers, but found the coffee to be secondary and would have liked a bit more bitter coffee.

Aroma of roast malt, coffee and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, caramel malt and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a roasty coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle, shared with caterwaul. Mostly hazy red / brown color. Thin khaki head. A couple loose, airy splotches of lace. Very big, strong bitter, musty coffee flavor. Very roasty. Stronger roasty almost burnt malt bitter taste. Not much else, no sweet at all. Some earthy, herbal hop is noticed late under all that coffee. Medium-plus body. Initially, kind of a soft, stronger carbonation, but it gets more agreeable as I go. More dry finish. Nice long, bitter strong coffee aftertaste. Gets much better and and more enjoyable as it sits and warms up; gets more integrated. Coffee works well with the nutty malt, hint of dark chocolate to it. Complex, powerful flavor. Really good, assertive strong bitter coffee ale. Love the long, bitter roasty coffee aftertaste.
