Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Sweet espresso coffee aroma with lightly roasted malts. The flavor has big coffee and espresso notes, sweet dark chocolate, and a long roasted coffee finish. Good stuff.

This is another excellent beer from an excellent brew house. Very dark. First sip tastes pretty much like coffee. Sip on it for while and you’ll think it is. Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint at the brewpub. Pours really dark, even in direct sunlight. No head on this one. Real roasted coffee in the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium with virtually no carbonation. Excellent use of coffee. The flavor is captured very well with malts providing bittersweet cacao notes for balance. Smooth and drinkable.
