3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at GABF 2013. Black pour with a tan head. Smoky malt aroma with roasted coffee. Weak coffee flavor with muted smoke. Mouthfeel is thin and a bit watery. Had promise, and is not a bad beer, but it did not live up to the aroma.

Aroma of moderate coffee, roasty malts, dark chocolate and a touch of smoke. Appearance is black with foamy mocha head. Flavor is roast/coffee dominant that comes off as somewhat astringent; the finish is dry. Palate is light, creamy and average. Just alright for me.

Dark beer with a creamy tan head. Sadly it didn’t last for long. Toasty and roasty with coffee. More bitter than expected, which was a good thing. Pleasant aftertaste taste is same as beer. Creamy, thick mouthfeel with only some carbonation.
