Bottle shipped down by the brewery for RBWG. Black pour with a small khaki head. Rich coffee, vanilla, and some chocolate coming through in the aroma. Slightly sweet flavor with coffee, vanilla, and a bit of dry roasty malts lingering. Not bad.

Bottle at RBWG late night lobby tasting. Pours dark muddy brown with a small tan head. Nose is sweet, creamy, vanilla, french roast sweet smelling coffee from one of those carafes. Flavor is similar, a little on the sweet side for the style and my tastes. Fairly reminiscent of Victory at Sea which I also didnít really care for.

Pours a bit lighter than expected, but dark. The nose definitely has vanilla, but I kept getting toffee more than coffee. Tasty. Wish Iíd realized this was a coffee beer before opening. I have to get up early in the morning.
