3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is toasted, chocolaty with striong coffee. Background sweetness. The flavor is coffee forward and silky on the palate with a nice chocolaty backbone and light roast in the finish. Pleasant sweetness throughout. Really enjoyable.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thansk, flopfacefred. The beer pours nice and black with a medium-sized, heavy beige head. Looks to have some heft to it. A bit of lacing. The aroma is big on coffee and chocolate. Nice roasty, fruity coffee flavors. Rich caramel malt underneath. Lots of fudgy chocolate with a creamy sweetness to it. The taste displays much of the same. Big mocha mix of creamy chocolatey sweetness and coffee. The coffee seems a touch acidic and maybe kinda strong in the taste. It crowds out the chocolate in the finish somewhat. Still, itís a solid enough mix and works together pretty well. More of a dark chocolate flavor to the taste, though that might just be the coffee bitterness. A touch of booze but itís nice and doesnít hurt the beer. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. If anything, it could be a bit weightier, though I think thatís more a function of the abv. It drink plenty big for 9.2% abv. Another excellent beer from Beachwood.

650ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to Danny Aoun. Pours deep dark brown - almost black with a beige head. Aroma is lots of medium roasted coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of alcohol. Flavour is medium bitter and light sweet. Medium bodied, a bit oily texture, average carbonation. Finish is long, cold brewed coffee with a hint of chocolate and nice bitter balance.
