Aroma is strong grain notes, rye, nuttiness and cereal (possibly Life or Chex). The flavor is coffee/espresso, complex malts/grains, light fruit and a mix of slight tartness/mostly thick smoothness in the finish.

Pour a nice dark amber. Well balanced. The coffee isn't too strong and works well with he mild citrus and malts. It's a keeper.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear dark ruby - moderate lace - nose of earthy, caramelized sugars, vanilla, oily coffee bean, lightly tangy lemon - flavor is medium sweet toffee up front, followed by moderate coffee bean, earthiness/mushroom, a touch of smoke - lemon peal is hardly noticeable - finish of toasty malt and light coffee - a strange combo - not bad, but it doesn’t all work as well together as it could.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Pour - translucent brown with a thin head that recedes quickly. Aroma is sweet malt, coffee, hint of milk chocolate...very clean for the style. Flavor is different than anything I can recall, and it works quite well actually...malty beer flavor up front is quickly replaced by smooth espresso notes, and even a citrusy feel as well...ends with a considerable chocolate (& coffee) note. Sweet throughout, there is little to no hop presence here. Slight corn flavor mid-drink. Palate is very smooth and slightly rich - at least more viscous than I expected. Wouldn’t drink many of these, but not upset I have 3 more left to enjoy...
