Bomber. Pours black with a brown head and aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Taste is strong, tons of roasty, bittering coffee notes with roasted malt and lots of creamy chocolate throughout with a coffee, mocha finish. Delicious coffee brew

Great aroma but that after taste is like some cheap wine...but very light on the palette.

From the 650 ml bottle. Black pour with thick light brown head that settles back some. Brewed with coffee they say and the aroma implies it is a dark roast coffee. But there is some alcohol too and a wooden barrel. Smells like a barrel-aged beer. The body is chewy and full. The booze is more apparent in the taste but it is intermixed with coffee, dark malts, and dark fruit with a lingering bitterness.

Flaske: Drukket i Joshua Tree Park under den mest fantastiske nattehimmel. Kulsort olieret øl med et cremet mokkafarvet skumhoved. Duften er kaffe og masser af impy og hrmpf. Smagen er kaffe, brændt med en smule alkohol. Lækker satan.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
650 ml. bottle sampled @ Barley Legal Tasting Room. Procured from Hopduvel upon Benzai’s recommendation. Dark brown, beige head. Nose is huge roasted coffee beans and fresh cup of black coffee, molasses, sweet, palm sugar, liquorish. Big roasted coffee grounds, palm & exotic sugar, black coffee, roast, molasses, light hazelnut, big coffee bean sour in the back. Thick coffee mouthfeel. Thick is just alcoholic coffee as opposed to beer with coffee, interesting, I like it.

Coffee and chocolate aromas are dense. Nice thick brown foam tops the full body. Not too bitter. A very pleasant drinker.
