Bottle. Darkest brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, peanut butter and roasted malt. Malty and roasty flavor with coffee and chocolate before a peanut butter finish. Exquisite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle shared by JaBier, who showed me that this one should indeed be rateable because it was brewed with coffee and bottled, and not just pulled through a randall. Anyway, it pours a deep brown color with a small beige head that leaves some film and a ring. Notes of fudge, coffee, vanilla, chocolate, and a nuttiness that suggests peanut butter, but the sweeter version that would be inside a Reese’s. Surprisingly sweet, actually. That’s what differentiates it from the Cafe Silk Porter, to me. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Interesting beer.
