On tap at bierkraft, the coffee infused version. Pours a pitch black with a tan head. Aroma is not very distinct. Unimpressive. Mild coffee notes. Very intense maltiness and coffee notes. Biggest fault in this beer is the mouthfeel. Not that effervescent or creamy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ Singlecut. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts and nuts. Very reminiscent of a typical brown ale. Taste brings much more roast, some astringency and some tang from the carbonation. Spritzy on the palate. Finishes roasty and bitter. I consider this to be a different beast than the schwarzbiers I’ve had in the past. I liken it more to a brown lager or something. Interesting to be sure.

Draft at Draught 55. Pours very pretty dark brown with pillowy head. Nose is subtle cocoa. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, pine, earth, light smoke, some hop bitterness, and leather. Palate is thin and watery. To me this is close to be delightful just misses
