3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer delivers as advertised. Black with a creamy tan head, the aroma of chocolate and coffee are most prevalent. The flavor has the same coffee and chocolate with a very nice sweetness. Smooth and tasty.

Fairly deec but not exciting or inspiring. Even on nitro the body was a bit thin for the style, and there wasn’t much to the flavor beyond coffee.

On tap, black pour with small off white head, lacing was minimal. Notes of espresso, wood, green pepper...very columbian bean tasting. As it warmed it smoothed out but becam boring. Very creamy mouth, medium body, Alirght.

Enjoyed on tap at Maple Shade. Coffee added to a dry stout. Good coffee and above average mouthfeel. Some lace. Roast right there. Decent beverage. Fresh coffee aroma. For coffee fans and so-so drinkability for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4oz sampler draft at Maple Shade. Pours out almost black brown color with a small white head. Aroma is of smooth, creamy coffee, light chocolate and slight roast. Taste is of smooth medium roast coffee, light chocolate, roast and a light bitterness on the finish. Complex for the lower abv.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Maple Shade. Poured a bit thinner then I was expecting, super deep dark brown that looks black towards the center with red/brown edges and a smaller slightly fizzy beige head. Aroma was AWESOME!!! Cup of coffee basically, coffe with cream dominates and not much else, excellent. The body was fizzier on the carbonation then I was expecting and the overall mouthfeel was average to a tad bit thin. The flavor is where this one really gets knocked down as I noticed hints of butter on the initial flavor and the aftertaste. This hapened throughout most of my sipping. At times the butter notes dissapeared but then it would reappear. Inbetween the butter notes there was lots and lots of coffee along with some light burnt toast. Nice but after the aroma I was expecting LOADS more from the flavor, well except for the butter.
