3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the BNA 8 party at World Cafe live Philadelphia
Huge coffee bomb! There’s a little caramel sweetness but this beer is mostly coffee and at times a bit too bitter for me.

Bottle. Pours deep black with one finger of mocha head that quickly dissipates and soapy lacing. Nose of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malt. A little light bodied for the style, well carbonated, with a strong sweet and bitter coffee finish. Pretty tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Bainbridge Street Barrel House in Philly. Pours a deep dark black color with a two finger dense tan head that falls to a thin cap and leaves lots of lacing. Big coffee aroma with some roastiness and a hint of milk chocolate. Taste is very coffee forward and nicely balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Also has some milk chocolate and and a hint of dark fruits and wood. Medium to heavy bodied, with a long lasting bitterness and a drying finish. This would be a wonderful breakfast beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Maris. Pours pitch black with a medium sized brown head that sticks around. The aroma is about as coffee forward as can be.. Just straight coffee bean to the max. Whether you like that or not determines the aroma-rating. The taste makes Wake-n-Bake seem like a child’s coffee beer. This guy is straight alcoholic coffee. That is an awesome thing in my book. It may be one dimensional but it is a great dimension. It is a little thin on palate but that is the only knock.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, thanks Huhzubendah! Poured a dark color without much of a head - perhaps a wispy brown color at best. Aroma is coffee with plenty of roasted and chocolate notes. This is pretty good! Touch of bitterness in the finish like a cup of coffee.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, thanks Huhzubendah. Medium brown head atop black body with brown edge. Aroma is moderately sweet, roast/coffee. Taste is moderately sweet, coffee/roast/ Medium body, some stickiness. One of the truest coffee beers I’ve experienced -- i guess it’s up to the individual to decide whether that’s a good thing.
