"Man, they nailed this one. Just big enough to be better on nitro. Super smooth, big flavor of vanilla ice cream and loads of coffee (though not at the expense of everything else). Fresh roasted coffee aroma. Sweet leaning and VERY easy to put down."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Carlsbad brewpub. A clear looking dark brown beer with a dark beige head. Some lacings. The aroma has lots of coffee, sweet coffee. Dark chocolate too. A bit one dimensional flavor, but nice. Medium body, very low on carbonation. Coffee and dark chocolate in the finish. Sure nice, but maybe a bit too focused on coffee alone. 130813

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from Pizza Port Carlsbad. Strong coffee upfront, layered on creamy nitro body. Milky sweetness, nuts, and sweetish finish. Good, but doesn’t harmonize as well as it could have.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear dark brown color with medium tan creamy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy roasted coffee and milk chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On nitro tap at Carlsbad. Pours with a retentive creamy, nitro off-white-tan head over a clear dark brown hued body with red highlights. Aromas are huge coffee, lactose, chocolate, bready and toasty. Flavors are sweet, brown sugar, coffee, toasty, nutty. Missing body, but I have no idea where the 8%ABV is hiding. Creamy, lactose, but feels a touch thin. Tasty.
