Served on draft at Stone’s 16th Anniversary Celebration. The appearance is a deep brown with a nice brown head with some bubbles. This guy is pure medium to dark bodied coffee. Really pure wonderful coffee profile. Some sweet cream and light cocoa powder notes as well. Medium full mouth with a touch of chalkiness. I really enjoy this one. Will have to try some more from Latitude 33.

Pours black from the tap. Creamy head leaves good lacing. Full chocolate aroma with just enough hop. Flavor is chocolate and expresso. Palate keeps some of the malt sweetness but remains dry and flavorful. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Stone, Aroma is Espresso/burnt coffee. Not an iced coffee aroma like some coffee beers, this beer has an actual coffee quality to it’s aroma which is great. Thick mouthfeel with some deep chocolate notes, but the predominant flavor is coffee. Which is great if that’s what you are looking for.
