downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015

bubbleflubber (2154) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours an opaque black into the glass, with a hint of mahogany to the fringes. The head is tan and substantial, leaving spiderweb lacing. The nose is of deep coffee roasted aromas. Flavors are dry, of freshly brewed roasted dark coffee beans, with roasted smoky bitters adding a slight acrid acidity to the finish. This occurs by entering a light Sanka instant coffee into the mix. With a slick mouthfeel and substantive body, the bean grounds seem to age quickly at the back end of the palate. This coffee offering serves best in the cold months, and is a drier take on the abounding java styles. However, if youíre like my late grandfather, and love this "style" of coffee, it wonít disappoint.
