500mL can, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lactose upfront, followed by a touch of vanilla and cocoa. Flavour brings out lactose and peanut butter in great harmony. Smooth and luxurious on the palate. Really good stuff.

16 oz. can from Jeff- thanks for the bonus, Jeff! Pours an opaque brown color with a tan head that settles into a big ring that lasts all the way down. Notes of cocoa, cream, mild coffee roast, nuts, tobacco, and earth. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet and roasty mouthfeel. Simple and satisfying.

Can. Deep brown-black hue with a dense head the color of graham crackers. Nose has lactose, milk chocolate, a little sourdough, toasted barley. Roasted malt leads the flavor, alongside mild chocolate, cheddar, milk sugar. Mild roasted character -- more barley-forward than cocoa or coffee, and with a good amount of malty sweetness remaining after the swallow. Body is just a notch under medium; CO2 is very mild. Prett standard.

fresh can recieved in a trade. shared with a friend. poured a creamy chocolate colour with a nice mocha coffe looking head on top. nose is hit with a big dose of freshly pressed coffe, bittersweet roasted chocolate, roasted grains, chocolate malts, and a nice mocha hint. taste that follows the nose. but the mouthfeel was the best part. i had to check it again if this was really 5.4% incredible. such a full bodied mouthfeel. itís thick, creamy, big a huge amounth of chocolate coffee. i am instantly in love with this brewery. canít wait to get to try more of their beers! lovely
