HOLY NOSE BATMAN! Probably the best beer I’ve ever smelt. Just, wow. Pour thanks to Markwise, thanks man, best extra ever. Big body, taste is exceptionally malty and balanced. Nutty, big coffee, just a crazy good beer. If I had an endless supply of this I would hydrate on it.

This poured a straight jet black color with a very dark tan to brown head. This stuff was extremely viscous, just like the regular version, very oily. Aroma was fresh dark roasted coffee, lots of herbal notes, chocolate, vanilla and lots of dark roasted malts, just awesome. Flavor was just as great as the aroma, lots of freshly roasted coffee, slightly burnt, sweeter chocolate, roasted malts, and very herbal hops notes. Just excellent stuff.

Draft. Pours black with a thin head. Big big big coffee aroma with roasted malts and some light molasses-like sweetness. The flavor, again, has huge coffee notes up front, with molasses, chocolate, and roasted and burnt malts. Really good.

Pouring at the Blind Tiger for Mike’s 50th birthday extravaganza. Pours a deep jet black, with no head. I’ll have to agree that this one may have been better on nitro, and that’s a rarity since I usually think nitro is overused. Huge coffee on the nose, blows away any other coffee beers I can think of for the amount of “I’m pretty sure this is coffee, and not a beer with coffee in it” that I was getting. Deep roast, just loads of it, one dimensional really, nothing but roast and coffee. Like drinking an iced coffee, sort of too much. Long coffee and roast. Light alcohol on the finish. Still awesome, but maybe a bit too much.

On tap at Blind Tiger in honor of Mike Eyedrinkale; thanks Victor (if you actually got me any of this). Pours a good looking thick, syrupy black with a slight polish to it. Aroma is massive of espresso and chocolate liqueur. Flavor is similar: primarily delicious espresso with a bit of chocolate liqueur. Velvety and thick body with loads of fresh coffee in the finish. This was a bit simplistic but just too ridiculously delicious to rate lower.

Tap at Blind tiger for Mike’s B-day bash - Big thanks to EDA for saving this keg when he knew I’d be there (haha). Arouma is sweetened espresso, creamy body, dark chocolate and milky pine and plenty of oak. Sweet dark malts, with a lingering dryness some boozey heat and carbonic acids. Not much complexity, actually. I hear (from Andy) that it’s better on nitro.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2011 Draft at blind tiger with Brendan, barons, Andrew and streets. First thing this reminds me of is the mikkeller beer geek weasel. Pours a pitch black body with no head, no lacing. Aroma is full of the richest, most delicious coffee, chocolate and smooth roast. Mouthfeel is medium to thick with notes of perfected coffee, tobacco, roast, light tart, and some chocolate in the background. #2200

On tap at Blind Tiger with Andy, Streets, James. Dark pour with no real head. Aroma is intense sweet resin and alcohol. Palate is smokey coffee with dark, dark chocolate malts. Pretty unique. Medium-bodied and drinkable. Gets points for complexity.

On tap at blind tiger. Rich coffee syrupy flavor... Reminds me of the weasel breakfast. Pour is near black with tabacco and rich roast espresso aroma. Little bit of sharpy marker, tobacco, and espresso in the mouth.
