Can at home. Pours a dark brown, almost black. Nice thick white head. Aroma is coffee coffee coffee. Wow. Probably the most coffee aroma I’ve smelled in a beer. Nice! Taste is coffee, with a bit of cream, slight sweetness and a mild bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. This is like a nice boozy glass of cold brew coffee. Mmm.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can poured into a coffee mug. The aroma is a mild and smooth coffee with some woody spices. It pours a rich, dark caramel color with an off-white, dense filmy head that has a moderate retention. The taste is a medium, balanced bittersweet. The texture is oily and creamy with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium body. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, earth, and nuts blend nicely on the palate with a finish that’s earthy, but smooth with a tinny quality and flavors of pecans. The aftertaste is light with a flavor profile of spice and tin, but mostly clean.

Pours a dark brown colour with a nice tan head. Aroma is distinctly of coffee with a slight malt undertone. Taste is mildly sweet but mostly dry and quite malty with no real bitterness to speak of. Medium body, light carbonation, smooth and slightly creamy on the palate. Really enjoyable brew, highly recommended.

Clear mahogany, dark brown, light tan. Big coffee nose (obviously), dark roasted malts. Some bitterness, but not much in the way of sweetness. Light body, good amount of carb, shorter finish. Good.

Sampled at ESBLS. Dark brown with a lot of amber. Minimal head. Lots of coffee in the aroma. That dominates the flavor, too. Dry and very roasted. Again, coffee. A little grass under that. Pretty good stuff.
