Strong black color with strong tan head. Strong, creamy coffee water aroma. Strong coffee flavor with a light bitter finish but a little bit of stale coffee bean. The aroma is more pleasant than the flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is pure, strong coffee. Flavor if strong coffee, some malt, light sweetness, dark chocolate with a strong coffee bitterness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly lighter the expected, I guess perhaps medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable, tasty brew! Very strong on the coffee and I dig that.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A black beer with a ridiculously large tan head. Seriously, it is way over-carbonated about two inches of beer to six inches of head on a gentle pour. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, oat, and lactose. The flavor is coffee, lactose, and a bit of anise as well, but inferior to the aroma.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and caramel in the aroma. It is delicious. The taste is a bit underwhelming, as it doesn’t deliver all the promises the nose makes. It is correctly bitter and not as sweet or strong in coffee favors as I had expected. The palate is more medium than thick and carbonation is adequate. If only everything else were as good as the aroma...
