2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle at RBSG 2010 - Pours dark brown and smells heavily of coffee. Unfortunately itís more like coffee grounds than a good roast coffee. The taste of more of the same. Thereís some roast malt in there but any other flavor is overwhelmed by a stale coffee ground taste. This beer does not work. Just bad.

Reviewed from notes.
Poured into a tulip glass. Color is very dark brown bordering on black with a tan head and a bit of lacing. The nose brings forward a pretty good dose of roast and coffee with a little bit of chocolate in there. The flavor is coffee and chocolate and has a nice bit of cream, which is quite nice in the mouthfeel. Good carbonation and body. Drinks fairly well, but a bit too roasty with the coffee being a tad bit burnt.

draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo. Dark & somewhat flat pour. Spicy, hot pepper, black pepper notes in the aroma. Roasted malts & coffee bordering on burnt coffee aree abound. Lighter pepper in the flavor than the aroma led on. Nice solid roastiness, lightly charred coffee, vanilla. Nice beer
