3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample on tap at the brewpub. Clear deep brown pour with thin creamy off white foam (nitro). Aroma is super coffee forward, nice and roasty, fruity nutty caramel coffee aroma. Taste is light, a tad watery, light sweetness with nice coffee roast flavor. Palate is light, a tad too light perhaps with creamy mouthfeel. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light coffee aroma and toasted malt. Black color with soft tan head. Light coffee taste with a light roasty taste. Light mouthfeel; delicate but flavorful without being overbearing. For someone who is not a fan of lagers, I enjoy this beer.

Draft at the brewery, great aroma roasted grains, deep ground earthy coffee and yeast. Flavor is a perfect copy of the aroma. Coffee is earthy, toasty and flavorful. Body is medium with a nice ashy feel. Damn fine.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled this at Tap and Mallet total tap takeover. Pours an dark brown with a medium tan head. The aroma has nice roastiness and a slightly sweet dark chocolate and smokiness. The flavor steps up the smokiness and this cuts down on the chocolatey sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty lingering to mild smoke and coffee. Same as Smoke and Dagger, but with coffee.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at bar in Boston. The best thing is the looks. Black brown with thick foam. Taste is too much dark sugars/molasses. Asking it too sweet. More malt bitterness would probably make it more balanced
