4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle, Delirium Hoppy Loft, 21 July 2012) Black as hell, with brief frothy beige head. Malty, roasted nose with massive amounts of freshly ground coffee, some cacao, wort and a touch of dark rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, strong black coffee, dark bread, brown sugar, vanilla and some honey sweetness coming through in a fairly vinous finish with a generous coffee bitterness. Some alcohol shining through, but stays in the background. Full body, rounded mouthfeel. The nose indicates a massive coffee attack, but taste is a lot more complex and quite well balanced considering all the impressions. Absolutely lovely beer!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A-- Poured an oily looking reddish black color. Settled black, no light penetrating this at all. Nice looking head. A sort of dark reddish brown leather looking head. One finger in height and looks like a mousse with the thickness in the head. Sits at a nice layer of film. Great spotty lacing and leaves a dark reddish brown layer of film in the glass.
S-- Strong, powerful coffee. Has held up well with some age. Marshmallow, peat, wood, chocolate, char and ash. Just very vibrant and a big nose. Just lovely.
T-- Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, coco powder, carmel and some char and ash. Nice well rounded flavors.
M-- Low carbonation and medium feel. Slick and oily in the mid and back with a overdrawn coffee and burnt tire finish. Slightly sweet as well. Well hidden ABV.
O--- Excellent example of a RIS with coffee. Slightly dry, slightly sweet, coffee in the right spots. Well hidden ABV and just a fun beer to drink on a cold night. Will buy again if given the chance.
