On tap at 3floyds in Munster. Poured into a glass that looked more like a coffee mug. Pours deep black with small tan head. Aroma is coffee with black and roasted malts. Taste is coffee and roasted malt, but mostly just coffee. It’s actually kind of strange because I’m not a coffee drinker, but I really enjoyed this one. I even got a growler to go.

From tap@ Mikkeller Bar (Three Floyds event, 25.05.11). A black beer with shine-through clarity. Medium-sized, sand-colored head. Prominent coffee aroma. Very clean smelling, with a fine dryness and notes of refined, well roasted dark malts.
Taste is dry and coffee forward. Clean-tasting as well, with a crisp and roasted malt body. Notes of unsweetned black chocolate, and a subtle tone of red berries. Medium full. A plesant bitterness from mid-palate to finish. A very nice one, almost like a powered up English style Stout.

Black colour indeed. Very nice roasty malty and coffee aroma. Good mouthfeel. Sweet flavour with lots of roasted malt, coffee indeed and chocolate. Long lasting bitter roasty malty, coffee and chocolate finish.

Taste thanks to Maltzilla. Black color with a good amount of coffee in the aroma. Much of the aroma follows in the flavor.

Growler… Pours dark brown with a large, fluffy, khaki head. The aroma hints at infection as there is a degree of lactic tartness to go along with the herbal coffee and deeply roasted malts. Although the infection has dried things out a bit, the brew hasn’t thinned considerably. Medium-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor provides big-time coffee and dark chocolate – mocha – with light notes of cardboard and lactic acid. Finishes, roasty, lightly tangy and chock-full-o-coffee. I would love to try this again, sans the onset of infection. Growler courtesy of Maltzilla!
