Loving the purple wax. Pretty. Dark brown with some tan head. Lots of bitter coffee but this is a 2013 (thanks Brian). Some dark chocolate notes. Enjoyable for sure.

Bomber to start our Halloween tasting.. Batch 1 of 2013, lavender pearl wax. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, molasses, raisin, coffee. Flavor is molasses, chocolate, coffee. Slight astringency, but this is holding up well for a 2+ year old coffee brew.

No notes on appearance.. Aroma of big coffee - well integrated me thinks. Also dry oak and sweet licorice. The taste has roasted cofee, milk chocolate and nutty qualities. Aftertaste gets semi vinous. Very good is the verdict.

650ml bottle enjoyed @ a friend’s cottage. Pours pitch black with a creamy beige head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is cold brewed coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and liquorice root. Flavour is light sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation. Finish is long with coffee dominating.

Bottle. Awesome aroma of coffee with just a slight roast, chocolate syrup, and bourbon. Tastes incredibly smooth. Loads of coffee and just a light bourbon taste. Could be so much better with some more chocolate or something else but it’s still very good as is.
