Bottle from Lee Discount Liquor, Las Vegas
Black color with medium sized head. Aroma of cold coffee. Dry mouthfeel, less strong than expected; flavor of stale pot coffee with some bold resiny hops.
Coffee beer? Maybe not a great idea.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: Pours a deep brown with good clarity where allowed. Little to no head formation with a solid sheet of latte surface foam which doesn’t stick around. No lacing.
S: Sweet, licorice, esters, light coffee. Very soft coffee. Smells like it fermented a little warm.
T: Hmmm. Pretty much tastes like a poorly crafted imperial stout. Very sweet. Hints of not bitter, but sharpness. Au cont-rare: the beer is okay to drink, but nothing special.
M: Medium body for the style, low carbonation. Leaves mouth without resonance.
O: On par with mactarn and pyramid’s offerings: forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
alcohol, licorice, dark chocolate. hard to coax a dark khaki head that faes quickly, well balanced flavor, roast malt/coffee most assertive but still not dominant sharing tongue space with resin, alcohol and dried plums. has its own identity in the mouth, lighter than expected but still full. slightly sticky finish

Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma has roastiness and light coffee...a bit boring and one dimensional. Flavor has a cheap caramely note, some coffee, and mild burnt bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with a burnt/bitter dry finish.
