4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The coffee in this is very well balanced, and actually could be a little more forward for my taste. Very smooth, easy drinking, with a rich, rounded profile and a somewhat less-than-over-the-top palate. (on tap at the Muddy Pig, St. Paul, MN)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours basically black with a small head that leaves spotty lacing on the glass.
The aroma is coffee & chocolate with some very light hoppiness. Itís sweet smelling, aromatic... really inviting and enjoyable.
The beer is a touch boozy, itís got some good dark chocolate, itís plenty bitter with lots of coffee and some espresso. Kinda sweet in a nice way...

Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Big roast, cocoa, green coffee, oak, bread, and somewhat earthy aroma. Taste is dark fruits, caramelly, brown sugar, light cocoa, coffee, and wood with a light bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Very tasty and well-balanced, hard to believe it is 10%.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This wasnít for me. I appreciate what went into this hence the higher score but this is all about the coffee. This smells and tastes like someone put coffee beans and alcohol into a blender and hit the on button. Very earthy and all coffee. Almost salty on the finish. No thanks.

March 6, 2015 - on tap at Busters. Dark brown pour with limited head that didnít last. Aroma was chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Taste was consistent with aroma. Finish was dry and heavy on the alcohol, and lingered for a while in the aftertaste.
