On tap @ Cigar City. Pours watery brown with a slight amber note, thin mocha colored head. Aroma is big rich roasty dark malts, fresh pulled espresso, sweet dark chocolate on the back. Taste is similar - slightly charred malts; creamy smooth mouthfeel, nice coffee depth on the finish with a slight but notable chocolate component. Rich and tasty, this is an impressive improvement on Maduro. I’ve never seen this much depth of coffee flavor in such a drinkable beer.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark brown with red highlights and has a large tan head. The aroma is all coffee with some chocolate and malt. The taste is simply a great coffee flavor. Outstanding.

At the M.I.A. brewhouse during a 3-hour layover at MIA as part of a sampler. A great guest beer. Pours black with full brown head that is retained. Amazing coffee aroma. A little thin on the taste compared with the aroma but very nice.
