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%.

This wasn’t 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.

750ml bottle to snifter. Pours oily black brown with a nice khaki tan tight foamy head that slowly fades to a sudsy film and collar along with subtle lacing. Aroma is smooth strong coffee and roasted malt and some hidden bakers chocolate and soy. Taste is great bitter velvet bakers chocolate and coffee along with soy and roasted malt. Palate is full rich and oily along with a chalky dry finish. This is fantastic! Really smooth and delicious!

March 6, 2015 - on tap at Busters. Dark brown pour with limited head that didn’t 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.

Bottle poured a black in color with a coating of brown head that fell away. Aroma has coffee, mild chocolate, alcohol, and dark malts. Mouth feel is hefty with slow carbonation. Flavor is heavy on the malts, big black coffee, plenty of roast, and dark chocolate. It has an oat like thickness and the coffee is super amped up.
