Crazy the variation in ratings. Nothing about his was offensive, off, or unintended. Rich, creamy, dreamy (yes, I went there). All Starbucks, Ghirardelli, Godiva, and split-vanilla bean. Really impressed and surprised. Didnít expect much from the bottle but got a really solid brew! Cheers!

Bottle from Samís quik shop - pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is boozy and espresso thatís been roasted too long. Overall, disappointing offering from Big boss.

Bottle from Samís Quik Shop. Pours coca cola brown with a thin khaki head. A slight coffee note on the nose. Thereís some alcohol burn on the finish but before that there was some roasted maltiness. Canít say I though it was worth the price.

Tap at The Cave in Chapel Thrill. Creamy dark mocha head. Clear deeper brown pour. Ok lace. Good retention. Nose is sticky, medicinal, a bit off, some lemon tea. Taste is heavy cardboard and dog food. Terrible. Palate is drained.

Originally reviewed: 2/17/12. Have had this a few times on tap, so itís about time for a review. Most recently imbibed at City Beverage here in town. Pours a deep black with a thin mocha head on top. The nose carries a good amount of roasted aromas, coffee, charred wood. The feel of this starts out well, but lacks in endurance. Just not enough heft to hold up these flavors and alcohol. Flavors of coffee and toasted bread, chocolate, and light boozy quality. All of this weakens as I sip, and the flavors get jumbled into unintelligible mess. This beer starts out nicely, but lacks in its finish. Not a bad beer, but not one of my favorites either.
