Tap at the Library Alehouse. Pours a deep brown with a medium bubbly tan head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of fresh ground coffee, toasted and roasted malt along with milk chocolate. Flavor of chocolate covered espresso beans. The mix of coffee meets chocolate is excellent. One of the top coffee beers I have had.

This beer doesn’t pretend it is something that it isn’t. It’s coffee, plain and simple.
Pours a deep brown-black with a thick chocolate head. Aroma is coffee; burnt coffee grounds, a touch of cocoa. Flavor is long on the coffee; rich black coffee with, again, a hint of chocolate. This goes down smooth. The real draw to this beer is the aroma and the flavor. If you love coffee and you love beer and you want to marry the two, find this beer. However, it is not complex. This beer is as linear as they come. Still very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very dark brown with a tiny bubbled almost nitro head. Aroma is like a cup of fresh espresso with a hint o chocolate. There has to be an absolutely massive amount of coffe in this, as the flavor is huge. Really like it in combination with the not too heavy body.
