4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a growler at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012, thanks to Paul who got it from other guy. Pours clear, red-brown with a fine, foamy beige head. Has a huge filter coffee nose that reminds me intensely of Dunkin Donuts coffee. Medium to big sweet flavor with ultra rich coffee, some chocolate syrup. Oh so, so smooth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Great finish, medium sweet, moderate roast, cocoa, robust coffee with a mild bitter edge. One of the truest coffee beers I have ever had. Completely drinkable. Wow.

Big thanks to yourefragile for bringing this growler over. Served in a Mikasa tulip.
Pours a dark brown color that borders on black with a small off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly, leaving some sparse lacing as it falls.
The nose brings a good amount of chocolate and roast plus a good dose of coffee. Really, really nice coffee in the nose; it smells light fresh coffee beans. Very smooth and creamy. The flavor has more chocolate and coffee, but isn’t quite as well matched. Light sweetness and bitterness.
Body is full and nice creamy. Carbonation is light, leading to a smooth finish without any noticeable alcohol.
Overall this was a big winner. A nice surprise growler that I was more than happy to partake in.
