2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Muddled, super swampy looking brown and tan, completely opaque with very small sediment and a paper thin light tan skin. Aroma is deep, burnt coffee beans. Off the chart, heavy roast, bitter blend. Extremely faint caramel sweetness in warming. Taste isn’t quite as heavily roasted. Mild burnt coffee bean up front, transfers to a sweeter, thick malty profile. Light caramel and toffee. Deep bitterness at first, with a mild astringency and strange tartness. Thin bodied, weird aftertaste. Somewhat dry, metallic, strange.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Coffee, roast, and some pipe tobacco in the aroma. Flavor is sweet with coffee and chocolate. Bittersweet coffee and a little alcohol in a very dry finish. Very nice effort.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Copper pour with a small ring of foam on the surface. Strong coffee notes in the aroma. Coffee is dominant in the aroma. There’s maybe some toasted malt and caramel in there but they are far in the background. Taste is strong coffee, caramel, chocolate covered coffee beans, toasted malt and coffee cake. Body is medium with a strong bubbly carbonation. Ends with more coffee cake, chocolate covered coffee beans, light caramel and toasted malt. Nice!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy brown body with a nice beige head. Aroma is all coffee - but somehow a bit askew. Full creamy palate. Flavor is coffee with a little bit of pepper, and a bitter coffee aftertaste. Interesting beer, but not something I’d seek out again.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
thought for sure I had rated this before, but passed on it over and over and turns out that I never rated it. 12oz bottle - pours brown with tan head and good lacing. Nose is coffee grounds. Flavor adds a malty backbone, but the coffee really dominates this beer - not brewed coffee, just coffee grounds. If you love booze and coffee grounds: buy the shit out of this beer. cool label: reminds me of a Slayer album cover (Reign in Blood). Coffee bitterness. OK, so now I’m listening to Raining Blood. Bass level 1 and Treble 5 - thanks Steve Albini!
