3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2015 On tap, poured into a snifter. There’s lots of coffee in the aroma along with oats and a touch of caramel late (as it warms). It’s a dark, opaque, red-brown beer with a tan foam head which retains a medium ring and a wispy surface. The taste is a medium sweet and medium high bitter. It?s oily and fizzy with a medium full body containing flavors of coffee, oats, chocolate, and caramel. It finishes with roasted bitter coffee and it has a syrupy chocolate and coffee aftertaste.

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Discount Liquors Milkwaukee ][ $3 ][ Woodshop Snifter ][ 10.24.14 ]
>> Pours clear deep brown producing an inky pour in the glass with large, brown foam. Okay retention and spotty lacing. Nose is sharper green cheap coffee and jalapeño. Moves to richer creme brulee, spicy pepper, vanilla bean, huge cinnamon graham cracker, dark cherry. Taste up front is bubbly, clean, medium bodied, low lemon acid, dark cherry soda. Super clean finish, coconut, mild to almost no coffee, no harshness. Easy to enjoy, no off flavors. Great stuff.

Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Pours dark brown with reddish highlights. Thin layer of fine bubbles. Aroma: coffee and oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Taste: coffee dominates here. Still plenty of chocolate, but sweetness is muted. Assertive coffee bitterness in the finish. Palate: medium+ body that doesn’t quite hold up to the fullness of the taste. Silky texture, average carbonation. Overall: I repeat: coffee with oatmeal chocolate chip cookie - 2 parts coffee to 1 part cookie.

Black with a small off white head. Aroma of coffee liqueur, caramel and vanilla. Sweetish malty flavour with sweet coffee notes, chocolate and toffee. Like a thin Kalua...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
"Opens up so nicely. Roasted coffee, earthy hops, a touch of chocolate on the nose. The flavor is a little more bitter than sweet, more earthy coffee beans and a touch of hops. Nicely balanced and very smooth. High quality across the board. Started out a high 3, but got better every sip. Thanks Heybeerman for the trade."
