This was a really pleasant surprise...drank in 90 plus degree weather but it was not overly rich as these can sometimes be. It was actually almost thin in texture but it had a great flavor mix of dark chocolate and coffee and some nuttiness too. It had a nice aroma of chocolate. Well done.

650ml bottle from a Shaw’s grocery store. Strange as it sounds, this really did taste like the Mexican coffee it used, tropical and fruity, but also coffee. Overall, this was really tasty, but the coffee did most of the work.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 5/1/13
Aroma: The aroma is heavy roasted malts/coffee, some burnt notes, and some mild earth
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with small beige head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is medium-heavy roasted, some mild sweetness, and a lingering bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a tingly feel, and a dry, somewhat off finish
This seemed like as good a beer as any for my first beer of May. Anyway, about this one is just a bit off. The nose and pours gave the impressions of a solid coffee porter, but something odd comes through in the taste and feel that doesn’t work for me at all. Overall, this one was disappointing because I really wanted to like it.
