3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can: Dark brown, nearly back once it’s in the glass. Looks thin. Light beige head, thick & foamy on top. Aroma is coffee heavy. More sweet & creamy, not super-roasted or bitter. Dense, lots of oily beans with an undertone of alcohol pungency. Thin in the feel, like it was in the appearance. Coffee sweetness up front; dense & highly concentrated. Small undertones of char, roasted malt, burnt nuts, & some cocoa. Finishes & lingers with semisweet coffee beans. Some noticeable alcohol as it warms. Pretty nice, a little thin & one-track minded, but not bad.

Can pours cola brown with a big beige head. Aroma of coffee and sweet malt. Taste is more coffee but with a big bitter coffee finish. Decent but kind of one-dimensional.

Pour out of can, thanks Scott! Dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of espresso, green coffee, chocolate notes into a bit of spice, slight earth with a touch of roasted malt. Taste was a mix of big coffee, espresso, hints of green coffee into some earth, some chocolate, touch of roast, finishing slightly roasted.

Poured out of a can. Dark rich color with light foamy head. I don't taste the alcohol. Taste is a smooth, lingering coffee and vanilla. Nice light creamy lingering coffee, with a hint of vanilla. Hard to believe there's 300 calories in here, but it's worth it!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
THOUGHTS: Had one a couple weeks before I tried this one one and it seemed to improve in those few weeks of aging. Hid alcohol fairly well.
TECHNICAL: Drank 3/23/2013. Can. Poured a clear, dark brown that was nearly black in the glass with bright red highlights and an average, tan head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma was great but a little weak and contained heavy roasted malt, chocolate and coffee; moderate caramel; and slight fruit notes. The initial flavor was slightly sweet, lightly bitter and ever so slightly sour; while the finish was lightly sweet, and light to moderately bitter with a fairly long duration. There was coffee, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, sweetened coffee, chocolate syrup, and hints of fruit; but coffee is the dominant flavors. The medium to full body was oily with fizzy carbonation and an ever so slightly metallic finish.
