3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Une grosse canette entre deux ratings du EBF. Bière brune avec sa tête mousseuse énorme et bien collée sur la paroi de mon verre. Au nez, caramel croquant, pointe de chocolat et du café terreux et cendré. Les saveurs sont légèrement piquantes comme un grain de café frais moulu. Petite douceur chocolatée. Lactose. En bouche, corps moyen-faible légèrement crémeux. Finale sèche en caffè mocha. Facile à boire et même plaisante.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma, as expected, is mainly of roasted coffee. The color is dense black--basically opaque--I couldn’t see through it with a bright light directly behind it. It has a tall, foamy, prolonged, light tan head that leaves attractive lacing. A good combination of sweetness and bitterness of the coffee (I detest straight coffee due to its bitterness but love it when sweetened enough). Full bodied, creamy mouth feel with a slightly above average carbonation for the style that leaves a little zing on the tongue over a long finish. Overall, a really enjoyable beer--one of my favorites right now and I’m bummed it is scheduled to be a limited release.

Yes please! Poured from a can, compliments of our good neighbor Neil. Decent head, great lacing, creamy and delicious. Mocha aroma, tart, some spiciness, smooth going down. Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at home. This was surprising. I’ve passed this beer up a few times in the store but the price was right and I was feeling like a stout this time. The aroma is fresh coffee, lactose sweetness, pennies, cocoa, chocolate, roasted malts. Not too bad. This thing looks great in my snifter. Big khaki head and a nice dark body. Flavor is all roasted malts, sweetness up front, chocolate and coffee galore. It’s not too sweet, very roasty, light carbonation. A nice brew!

Bottle. Dark cola with a thick khaki head. Aroma is coffee grinds, a little chocolate and some dark fruit. Taste adds some roasted malt and burnt brown sugar. Soft pillowy mouthfeel. Really well balanced. Very nice surprise.
