Bottle. Pours an opaque black with minimal tan head and little lace. Aroma is dominated by coffee, smells roasted. Flavor is also very strong coffee, flavor is rich and bold. Mildly bitter finish. Soft carbonation and a slightly oily mouthfeel. A decent coffee beer.

(bottle - 22 oz) Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Light roasted coffee aroma with some roasted malts and chocolate. Flavor is a nice blend of chocolate and malt with a bit of roasted coffee at the finish. Balanced and not overpowering.

22oz bomber from the Wine Shoppe (Brick). Pours out black with a small creamy mocha colored head. Aroma of coffee grounds, sweet chocolate, cream, and earth. Taste of roasted malt, black coffee, sweet chocolate, and a hint of vanilla bean in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bomber from Spirits Brick. Poured a nice looking black body that is just a tad thin sitting under an average sized dense creamy beige head that has some nice lasting power. Aroma is the best thing about this beer. Notes of chocolate to start along with sweet coffee, vanilla bean, cream, dark toast. Body feel is just way to thin for this beer, carbonation is suuper small bubbles with an average to light feel, lingering burnt aftertaste. Flavor isn’t as good as the aroma sadly. Notes of bad milk, coffee beans, old dark toast, vanilla bean, cream. Has a lot of potential and with some minor tweaking this could jump up a half point.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Prairie tulip -- Aroma imo is the most impressive part of this beer. Great espresso nose with a little malt sweetness backdropping it. Taste is silky very light roast and the roast capping off the back end highlighted by espresso. Overall, I would enjoy having this as a Saturday morning "start the day beer", as long as driving or operating heavy machinery isn’t involved.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with brother....as much as we could stomach before the drainpour. Aroma is old coffee grinds in a used filter and some tobacco. Pours deep black brown with a nice brown head. Taste is dull cardboardy malt, some licorice, old coffee, and a rotten roast finish. Couldn’t muster through.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at Twisted Pine. Appearance: some tan head, black color, great lace. Aroma: coffee can not be overstated, roast, light chocolate undertones. Palate: oily texture, full body, lasting bitter finish. Taste: tastes like an espresso shot, can’t say much more. Overall, not well balanced, but other than that, well done.
