"Combining jet black color with incredibly smooth texture and decadent coffee flavor, BREWTALITY breaks the expectations of both rich espresso and dark beer to create a whole ’nuther beast. While brutal in alcoholic strength, this biggie beautifully showcases its roasted malt and coffee flavors without bringing on bitterness and bite. This is the first of two lagers in the series."

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Appearance: sludgy, viscous black pour with an incredibly rich medium tan head near the consistency of pudding, which lingered forever, belying the ABV; impressive. Aroma: big and roasty in general; TONS of fresh-baked black bread (bit of rye?), scads of bustelo-type ground espresso, a surprising amount of umami (soy sauce), with a big backbone of molasses and licorice. Taste: VERY sweet and almost syrupy, with espresso-chocolate syrup, slightly burnt black bread with honey butter, tons of blackstrap molasses and vanilla, with just a hint of mint. Finish: fulsome with lingering chewy sweetness; the palate on this thing was a monster. Notes: A gigantic beer, but the alcohol was almost completely hidden in the palate, which was almost more like drinking an espresso milkshake as opposed to drinking a beer. Very little in the way of lager characteristics. Almost too sweet, too chewy, too big. Hard to wrap my mouth around this one. Still thinking about it... Bottle from Sarah for Beersmas 2014.

With Z, pours a deep dark black color with a small head. Nose is full of chocolate malt with rich espresso. Taste is roasted charcoal with notes of coffee and licorice. As to the contrary there is some old bitterness in the finish, with some subtle alcohol. Descent, quaff score 7 / 10 ☕️

Bomber. Pours pitch black with a brown head and nice coffee, espresso strong aroma. Taste is of delicious, lots of deep roasted coffee, espresso, and roasted malt leading to a coffee filled, roasty burnt, warming finish. Great coffee brew

slowrunner77 (10112) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Hmmm. This is almost a very special beer. Almost. Black pour. Huge espresso and malted chocolate aroma. Hints of smoke and more chocolate and iced coffee flavor. I’m a sucker for the coffee and its good, but there is no balance whatsoever, only 17 ibu, and the utter lack of bitterness makes this cloyingly sweet as it warms."

furthur (903) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Clear black body with hints of red, skiff of graham foam. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee, faint raisin. Taste is raisin, pecan, cherry, black coffee, vanilla. Kinda sweet, but not bad, finish is bitter sweet. Palate is thick, but not syrupy, carbonation moderate. Better than I remembered, especially in comparison to other stouts I’ve been drinking.
