3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at mcbackus 10/19. I brought this and was a tad bit disappoined. Dark brown pour, small tan head. Aroma of instant coffee, some dark chocolate and lots of roastiness. Flavor was a bit too harsh with coffee and a bit thin. Still a good beer, but not amazing.

Bottle thanks to the other guys. Well it tastes like freshly milled coffee. More of the same on the taste with bits of nuts and chocolate. Still coffee too dominant for my taste.

*On Tap at Real Gastropub, Honolulu Hawaii* Malty with plenty of roasted coffee beans, toast, toffee and hints of spice.....nutmeg & black pepper. Dark brown with reddish edges, rich flavor with coffee and a bit of prune juice. Mild bitter follow with light hops. Nice feel, not too thick. Good stuff!

Draft, black beer, tan head, great lace. Aroma coffee, toasty, some dark fruit. Flavor coffee, cookies, roasted barley, a little dried plum. Palate light but smooth, carbonation a tad bright for style, but not bad. Roasty, dry and smooth. Nice!
