4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Good People. Black in color with a nice tan head. Good nutty coffee and toasted malt sweetness to go with plenty of roast, chocolate, and maybe even some coconut. A hint of hazelnut and vanilla sweetness. Subtle bitterness of coffee and dark cocoa. Plenty of great coffee flavor. Probably their best beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes. On tap at Bell’s Funvitational on September 12. The pour is dark brown with hints of ruby and a large light tan colored head, leaving some decent lace. The aroma is all coffee and light roast. There is a little metallic sweetness that comes through on the back end. The flavor mimics it with a bitter coffee and light roast. There isn’t a whole lot else happening here. The mouth feel thin and slick with a quick fall off. This thing is way too over carbonated. The finish is abrasive and harsh with a lingeringly metallic coffee out the back end. Not too great.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2015 Sample at Funvitational. Aroma is coffee, lactose, sweet malt. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head. Taste is coffee, not much else. Mouthfeel is harsh, too much carbonation. Overall, it has a great flavor but the mouthfeel is overwhelming.

Can. The look is dark, has a tan head, black in color. The smell is coffee, malt, roast, oatmeal, nice. The taste is a little too acrid, malt, roast, coffee. Nice smell the taste needs to be smoother.
