3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A vigorous pour into my teku glass produces a three-finger thick, pale brown tinged, full tan colored head. The beer is a chocolate brown color. The nose has an immense coffee note to it that pretty much drowns out all other aromas, but it does have a toasted / roasted grain husk character in the finish. Slightly musty, and a bit like metallic cold black coffee.
Light bodied up front, but picks up a touch of richness as it rolls across the tongue. Coffee flavors also dominate the flavor with a bitter roasted coffee finish, softly rounded roasted coffee notes, a touch of coffee like smokiness, some dark cocoa notes, and a definite coffee derived nutty note. Perhaps a touch of noticeable malt character accentuates the nutty notes, the cocoa character and provides a bit of burnt grain husk character.
A beer for coffee addicts for sure, this is quite coffee dominated, and really not bad, but it is a bit simplistic in the end.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy roasted coffee, light chocolate, caramel, and a touch of vanilla. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a one finger khaki head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose milk chocolate with a touch of caramel. The finish has moderate roasted coffee, light vanilla, and a touch of roasted nuts. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Deanso’s monthly RB tasting, July 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is coffee and dry roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter, big liquorice, malty, with some dark chocolate too. The palate is surprisingly smooth, but rather chewy and with flavour. Deserves a higher rating.
