3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft: Dark brownish black color with medium brown head and no lacing. Aroma has rich cocoa malts and coffee notes. Flavor has bitter coffee and roasted cocoa malts. Okay overall but the added coffee makes it a little less smooth and balanced than Boris.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from the brewery via PUB’R. Turbid and thick black pour with tan head. Nose was roasty dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate, mild hops. Tastes thick and complex on the palate, with dark malt up front, coffee and chocolate syrup, but not sweetness, at mid-palate, and some vanilla and hops late. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice full body, smells of burnt coffee, tons of smoke, chocolate, and some booze.
Taste is big on espresso, chocolate syrup, oak and sweet malts. Kinda boozy for 9.4%
Overall solid coffee beer, but probably not in my top 5 in that style.
