Opaque black beer, no real head. Light palate, fairly smooth. Sweet black coffee. A little sweet lactose. Underneath are sweet red berry fruits. Nicely joined up and smooth. Hides the abv very well. Tasty treat!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Avery Tap Takeover at The Common Table.
The beer pours a pitch black color with a brown head. The aroma is full of coffee with some roasted malt thrown in. The coffee is extremely intense in the aroma, as well as the flavor. This tastes like I imagine iced espresso with a shot of alcohol would taste. There is also some roasted malt and chocolate but this is really all about the coffee. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very, very nice.

Black with a khaki head. Hella coffee, espresso, roasted beans, more coffee. Very smooth on the palate, it’s like drinking coffee with alcohol.

Draft. The aroma is espresso with boozy menthol. It looks fantastic. The taste is dark malt and coffee with no alcohol. Very good for how much alcohol.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours pitch black with a nice tan head that sticks around. The aroma is coffee forward with a little mocha trail. The taste is big coffee but not overly bitter or sweet.. Really great with just a touch of alcohol on the finish. An experience I hope to repeat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ink black pour with one finger burnt brown head. Super fresh coffee nose, smells like cold extraction. Coffee character is overwhelming and dominating with notes of chocolate. Rich flavor, too much coffee. Bitter burnt coffee and chocolate. Full bodied with some alcohol on the finish.
