"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."

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige / tan head. Aroma brings out lager malt upfront and espresso beans. Flavour brings out some dark berries, espresso beans, and some sweet cocoa. Luscious mouthfeel, bringing out lots of dark fruits and espresso.

Bomber purchased a year ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($13.99). Pours quite dark brown with only a half finger of tan head that very quickly dissipates. AROMA of espresso (dark and earthy beans), roasted notes, and lots of dark chocolate malts. FLAVOR is full of rich dark high-cacao baker’s chocolate, nutty roasted malts, some vanilla, and a significant dark coffee presence (with a bit of sugar and cream). Semi-sweet and unexpectedly soft on the palate considering how big a beer this is. The high ABV also stays completely concealed. Not sure about the style classification as a schwarzbier (especially with the big ABV), but it’s a winner. (98, 826)

this one probably too old, but thecoffee has not faded at all. Huge strong coffee flavors here, pretty nice, roasty with a thin body.

SDalkoholic (2214) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle from Olive Tree Market: Poured a jet black liquid that looked similar to actual espresso. Almost no formation of head but did start out with some foam on top. Aroma does have strong evidence of espresso coffee bean and dark chocolate malts. The drink is strong with a taste of medicine that is probably due to the unmasked alcohol content. Flavor is also heavy with dark roast malts that when combined with the espresso seems to be overwhelming. Has a dry finish and a pleasant lingering resin of sweet sugar and dark malt.

marcus (7301) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours near black with a modest tan head and a spicy treacle aroma. There is a full-bodied dark molasses flavor with a bit of coffee and a peppery finish.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2013
Aroma of dark molasses, bitter coffee and meaty smoke. Pours black with a swirly cocoa head. Taste is sweet with creamy espresso, molasses, and slight roasty coffee. Great thick taste but a light sweet mouthfeel. Solid!

Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks timfoolery). Looks good; cola with beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; espresso all the way, followed by dark malt. Nice on the palate. Good beer.

Bottle. Pours a slightly murky dark brown, with a thin tannish head. Sweet malt, chocolate, caramel, light espresso beans, light smoke, and light molasses. Notes of raisin. The coffee was noticeable, but not a dominating flavor. Pretty heavy beer, especially for a lager. I enjoyed it, interesting.
