4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #8, thanks to Bursprak! Pours a pitch black with a big, dense, nut brown head. Aroma has huge coffee first of all. Fruity, light roasted coffee, lots of vanilla, both dark and milk chocolate, slight crackers. Taste has fruity coffee, roasty bitterness, chocolate and vanilla sweetness. All this with a crazy nice balance. Not a crazy beer, but the coffee is a really nice addition to the regular speedway together with the more explicit chocolate. Really really nice balance, and ultimately a really good beer! Full, but smooth body with a medium low carbonation.
