From the tap. Heavy nitro characters surprised me a bit; poured more like a stout with fine, thick head; lots of retention. Roasted coffee bean aroma, some vanilla. Sweet, dark malt taste with mild caramel to finish. Some lingering, but not heavy bitter coffee which is good.

Pours black with a copper head. Smell of coffee and burnt toast. Creamy mouth feel with a nice touch of carbonation. Malt forward with a dry slightly sour finish. Great beer to enjoy on a cold day. Cheers!

Pour is dark brown with a beige head. Aroma and flavor are both huge coffee, there really isn’t much else. Slightly bitter finish, smooth, but thin.

Pours black with off white head. Nice slightly subtle coffee aroma. Medium body, a bit thinner than expected based on the pour. Coffee is well integrated.

22oz bomber thanks to WillRunForBeer! Pours a thin chestnut brown color with a finger of foamy tan head. Aroma of instant coffee, caramel, and milk chocolate. Taste of watered down instant coffee, chocolate, light ash, and butterscotch.

Aroma of dark roast coffee. Press thin black with a small white film. Tastes like delicious ground coffee and a hint of chocolate cake. Light mouthfeel. Very good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Pours black into snifter, 2 finger head fades fast. Nose is vanilla, coffee beans. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Needs more body. Taste is big dark coffee up front, vanilla notes, chocolate syrup. Finish is bitter smokey coffee which doesn’t last long. Doesn’t leave an impression. Good, but not special.
