This was excellent as a cask gravity pour. Soft carbonation, lots of interplay and although not in the description, the batch I had seemed smoky and rich with strong coffee. Excellent.

Clear, near black in color, with a thin tan head. Strong coffee, light chocolate aroma. A little bit of sweetness on the tongue but mostly bitter. Thin palate, high carbonation, dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Better than expected. Pours a coffee black to brown with a touch of tan head. Nose and taste are fairy coffee heavy. Not a beer I would seek out, but certainly one I would drink again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours black with a small white head. Smell is an overload of coffee.. which I love. The taste is mostly coffee with some minor chocolate notes. This is a style that I love and this is a very solid offering.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Dark brown. Way over-carbonated with an over-abundance of light tan, foamy head. Aroma is a not overly appealing combo of super green coffee, soot, ash, burnt caramel, super grassy/vegetal hops, and plastic. Ash and coffee flavor, brief sweet caramel and toffee in the middle, and finishes with wet grass and more ash. Carbonic acidity from over-carbonation plus coffee acidity equals not good. Just a mess of a beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle... light black body, nice color, not much of a head though... the aroma is very solid, really nice fresh ground coffee beans, rounded off nicely with a light coffee finish... the taste is a bit boring and thin, the coffee comes off a bit old and generic, doesn’t take bad but not something I’d have again, although one of the beter Philadelphia beers
