3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Opal Divines. Deep brown, almost black. Smells like coffee, tastes like black coffee, with a side of dark chocolate. Lighter than the appearance suggests; pretty thin. Not bad--I drank one and that was enough.

Great coffee flavour. Attack is present, but weaker than I would like. Some subtle roasty chocolate notes. Sloppy in the mouth. Another local i am proud of.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ the Fort Worth Gingerman. Coal black pour with a scant tan head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Nose is – surprise – Coffee, and a lot of it. Also a bit of dank musty earthiness under the coffee. Lighter mouthfeel than expected. Flavor is dominated by coffee, but does have some chocolate. Nice coffee bitterness in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Opal’s - Deep brownish crimson, thin creamy tan head. Mellow nose of roasted coffee and toast, with faint undertones of currants. Similar flavors throughout with a light tangy hop bite in the end. Light bodied and thin, fizzy carbonation, soft roasty finish. Drinkable, but nothing earth shattering...

Dark color. Rich malty aroma. Taste of chocholate, malt and hops. Finishes with a hint of coffee but not to much.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Tap: Silky mouthfeel, not much in way of aromas though. Kind of disappointed in the taste, it was a little thin, but I usually don’t like too heavy of ports though. Mouthfeel was great. Not very strong coffee flavor, a touch of chocholate and hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft, The Ginger Man, Dallas. Pours opaque brown much lacing and an adequate, tan head. Coffee dominates both the flavor and aroma. The flavor also has a bit of cocoa. Medium-bodied and moderately carbonated. Balanced, smooth and easy to drink. Too much coffee for me, but still a good beer.
