Gorgeous pour, deep opaque espresso with cappuchino head. Cascade on pour from bottle is reminiscent of nitro but with bigger bubbles. Dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and cherry on nose. Very balanced with mild bitterness from coffee and some chocolate sweetness. Medium/full mouthfeel with semi-long finish. Very creamy. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Perfectly black with fluffy, foamy mocha head.
N: Pure espresso mixed with rich dark cocoa. Heavy roast and a woodsy profile. Very earthy. Some lactose and burnt brown sugar. Ample dark roasted malts.
T: Decently bitter and sweet, in proportion.
M: Medium body, creamy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: A fine quaff. Not quite a chocolate covered espresso bean like the best of them, but certainly an earthier coffee profile that fits the base beer like a glove.

12oz bottle from total wine and spirits. Black with small tan head. The bottle I just bought might have been a bit old. Roasted coffee and chocolate nose. Nice aroma. Chocolate coffee then some roasty malt. Finishes a bit flat and metallic. Solid body, medium creaminess. Flavor just doesn’t carry through like I’d hope.
