Tap @ Half Acre: 2012 edition. Black as hell, slowly settling mocha foam on top - looks nice. Aroma of sweet coffee beans with a light, underlying roasty element. Hints of bitter cacao & a little burnt, caramelized sugar at the bottom. Taste full of sweet & creamy, almost milky coffee with a roasted bean aspect & an inherent sweetness. Possibly lactose. A small kiss of dark fruit in the finish; ends kind of bittersweet, with roast & sugar, a nice compliment. Milk chocolate mouth coat. Delicious!

Bottle shared by HopasaurusRex, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a solid black with a creamy tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Huge coffee aromas as well as some chocolate roast and light brown sugar. Light earthy aromas and a very faint dark dried fruitiness round out the aroma quite well. The flavor is rich dark chocolate maltiness with a bunch of creamed coffee poured over it. Light fruit and earth round out the flavor quite nicely. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation. Really nice coffee brew, I’m glad I got to try this.

Tap. Pours deep brown with a small, lacing, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and licorice notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, with a touch of alcohol and with bitter notes. Medium bodied, oily to creamy text. and flat carb. Very nice indeed.
