Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, acrid coffee grounds into a bit of vanilla, some slight chocolate, slight earth, grainy notes. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, nice coffee but slightly like old coffee grounds, acrid, some earth into a bit of yeast, slight caramel, finishing bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap. Dark brown pour with a cream colored head that laces well. Beautiful monster coffee nose. A little lighter on the palate - had on nitro so missing a little carbonation zing. Awesome coffee flavor. One of the best coffee beers I’ve had.

Nitro at GTMW, and one of my favorite beers from the weekend! Poured near black with the perfect nitro topper. The aroma picked up sweet, sweet coffee with lovely, complementary accents of chocolate and vanilla.. just what I needed. The flavor found sweet, roasty coffee throughout, with a little tangy green coffee around.. tasty coffee on the long finish. Buttery smooth through the palate with dense carbonation.. coating and delicious!

8/11/12. GTMW - nitro tap. Black pour with a fluffy tan head. Luxurious coffee nose along with chocolate and touches of sweet caramel. Lighter flavor with more coffee and some chocolate, cream, and caramel. People can argue for or against nitro, but this was definitely a tasty entry.

Nitro pour at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Lovely pour shows cascading chocolate milk cakey crown, good retention and stick around with strong lacing throughout. Dark blackish body with some ruby glow as it tapers out from the middle. Aromas are a bit carmelized, biscuity, some nice coffee java jabs and a bit of earthiness. Initial is creamy but not light, a suitable body with nice toasty and pretzel elements, coffee and carmelized malts. A gentle sweetness, creamy Nitro body work well here. Backend is a bit toasty and bitter, lingering coffee and biscuit elements. While the coffee is enjoyable, offering earth and gentle cocoa notes it peters out a bit early and seems to lack a bit of complexity. A tasty beer that could really elevate with some better coffee potency. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black color with a thick head. Moderate coffee and roasted barley aroma. The coffee flavor seems like a very light blend, enough to notice it, but kind of buried by the chocolate and and roasted barley. Thinish body.
