4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very stout-like in appearance, retentive tan head and lacing. Aroma of caramel coffee ice cream. Very mocha. Flavor full of roasted coffee, creamy and sweet, a mildly bitter finish with lingering sweet chocolate malts. More expressive as it warmed. A huge surprise.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ KLCC Microbrew Festival: Pours a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is strong with coffee. Almost overwhelms the lighter notes of cocoa and roast. Flavor again is a shot of coffee with chocolate and roasted malts playing a minor role. A kick of bittersweet right in the end.
