KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 12 oz Bottle. The pour was a deep dark brown, almost black with an average (1-2 finger) frothy light brown head that reduced down to a thin puddled film, which lasted throughout and had some really excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was of burnt chocolate malts and a strong leathery yeast with notes of dark roasted coffee, molasses, dark bitter chocolate and a mild smokiness. The taste was mildly bitter-sweet and very malty with a bold chocolate note in the beginning, and then became a little more on the bitter side with a strong dose of coffee towards the finish. The flavor lasted a good long while following the swallow with a nice roasty coffee taste settling in on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was full in body and rather creamy yet slightly dry in texture with an mild carbonation. Overall I found this brew to be very Robust just as the name insinuates, and rather flavorful with a nice roasty characteristic. The mocha espresso taste made it very drinkable and quite enjoyable to sip on. This is a beer that most definitely does justice to the style... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews
