3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On nitro tap at Whole Foods Dublin. It pours a dark brown/black color with a creamy khaki head. Aroma is coffee and dark cocoa. Kinda weak, but may be partly because of the nitro. The flavor is straight black coffee. Dry, medium/light body. No astringency. A tad watery for the ABV, but again could be because of the nitro treatment. It could use a bit more sweetness. Good. I usually like nitro stouts, but this may be one that’s better with CO2.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice black and clean. Tan-brown head that is just chillin on top. Dark roast coffee and chocolate aroma and taste. Slight roast astringency, but not too much. Medium to medium light body, but nice and smooth finishing slightly dry. Overall if you want some beautiful dark roast coffee that is alcoholic, this is for you. Definitely worth a try, Especially when you got shit to do... as long is it’s not terribly important.

On tap at City Beer in SF. Pours a deep brown with a cappuccino head and clingy lace. Aromas are basic, coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Tastes of coffee, some florals, a hint of bitter grapefruit. Was a bit thin and had a surprising amount of alcohol in the finish for being 5.5%

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Toronado. Pours a deep black with a small tan head. Big coffee aroma, lots of roastiness here. Very sweet and malty, roasted coffee really shines through. Finishes like, well, a cold cup o joe; bitter, but satisfying. Try it!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Went for it in SF because I’m a sucker for a good coffee beer, whatever it be. Don’t remember being superbly impressed with this guy. It was however smooth, nicely bodied, and had a milk chocolately coffee aspect that served OK. Worth a try.
