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.

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, doesnít take bad but not something Iíd have again, although one of the beter Philadelphia beers

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Pinnocchios. It pours a very deep brown with a small, frothy tan head. The nose is mainly coffee with some light flint notes. The flavor is thin coffee up front with a slight sourness and a slightly metallic back end. I have to say, this isnít my favorite. Thin in body with too much carbonation. It certainly isnít as bad as the lager I just had, but itís nothing to write home about either.
