3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, moderate frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Big bright coffee aroma.   Pretty simple, coffee with a bit of creamer on the nose.   Sweet and roasty coffee on the tongue.   Hard to believe this is actually 9.3%!   Very simple, but very clean and tasty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with lots of fresh coffee, a touch of creamer, with a background of lightly roasted malts.   Pure and simple a very good simple Coffee beer.   Not a Coffee infused beer, its just a Coffee beer pure and simple.   Nothing fancy, but very much a Coffee beer.   Strong, semi-sweet, with pale roastiness.   You want Coffee, get this one!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Best by 10/13. Looks good; a fairly opaque amberish brown with off-white lacing and lively carbonation. Smells solid; rye malt, coffee, and heavy roast with some dark fruit notes. Tastes like it smells with an average (somewhat bitter) mouthfeel. Good, not great.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
he flavor starts off with nice roasted coffee. Slight espresso notes. Flavorful but no too intense or overpowering. There is some nice coffee acidity to the brew as well. The malt backbone of the brew adds nice nutty notes such as some almonds and hazelnuts mixed in with slight cocoa notes and some mild caramel. The back end and middle of the brew has some nice coffee spice and acidity and there is some nice hop spice and bitterness that can be perceived as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl. A big light beige head forms over an unclear brown body. The aroma has loads of delicious coffee, spicy hints and some roasted malts. It’s lightly warming on the palate, full-bodied and with a high but suitable carbonation level. Roasted flavor with light caramel and nutty notes, a decent hoppy bitterness and a nice coffee touch. The coffee not as dominant as in the flavor. A pleasant sweetness too. The finish is a bit too warming, else really pleasant, with bitterness, coffee and sweetness, as well as some caramel, dark chocolate and nuts. Not really sure about this one. It’s very tasteful and pleasant on one side. On the other side it’s too warming and probably a bit too much, but hey, it’s a beer I definitely wouldn’t mind having again. 130815
