3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark brown coloured body with a dense, three centimetre tall brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, oak, alcohol, chocolate, a hint of coffee and a little bit of fruits. Full-bodied; Strong lactic flavours with a lot of cream, a dense chocolate and sweet flavour and a pungent earthy malt note. Aftertaste shows some sweet notes, a lot of alcohol flavours and a robust, slightly bitter finish. Overall, a nice deep and pungent beer with a nice subtle sweetness and a lot of malt depth and bitterness. I sampled this slim twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 02-April-2013 for US$4.49 sampled at home in Washington on 28-June-2013.

Very dark brown pour with ruby highlights. Biggish tan head with minimal lacing. Nice aroma of coffee. Smells like a creamy iced coffee. Vanilla. Taste is straight up iced coffee. A bit of chocolate, cream and vanilla. Very nice.

12oz can from ABC Wesley Chapel. Pours a roasty porter brown color with a fluffy tan head. Nose is roast, vanilla, chocolate, chocolatey coffee, some earth, but mostly coffee and milk with some mild vanilla and chocolate. Flavor is similar: coffee and milk up front with chocolate in the mid followed by some earth, cocoa, and chicory in the finish. Medium in body and nice overall.

It's a very rich beer with plenty of dark malts and coffee beans. The roasted malts are bitter and offers a great end nightcap

This is a powerful beer. I’m glad it came in as small a can as it did as I don’t think I needed anymore. Very alcoholic and the coffee and chocolate come across very strongly as well. The bitter aftertaste is a surprise. Tried in NYC in 2013.

Pours almost all black with a large, creamy, beige head. Aroma has cocoa, mild caramel, mild coffee, light milky. Medium carbonation, fat and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is mildly sweet, clear wheat, heavy roasted coffee and cocoa, darkish chocolate. Mildly vinious in the finish. Nice.

Pours a dark mahogany black color with a beautiful head. Nose is full of malt and deep espresso with some burnt chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate roasted coffee, with the alcohol extremely well hidden. Finish is short without any true lingering. Maybe tomorrow morning with my everything bagel. Quaff Score 8 / 10
