BB 14 12 16. Poured a clear dark red-brown with a one-finger beige coloured dense foamy head that retained very well and laced well after each sip. Carbonation moderate to high with fine to medium bubbles. Aroma strongly of chicory and not much else. Taste of roasted coffee and sweet caramel with hints of brown sugar and dark fruit; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Smooth with a creamy mouthfeel and subtle coffee on the long finish. Very good.

Again with the unexpected tartness in a coffee beer? I don’t know what they’re doing in New Zealand, but presumably it’s not an age issue, since they (Hallelujah! Finally!) put a BB date on the bottle. There is a small amount of hop profile present here, but it’s largely washed out by the coffee. Once again, I’m not all that thrilled with the coffee, though - it’s coming through as watered down and acrid, instead of smooth and rich (like e.g. Brunch Weasel). Somewhat surprisingly, it’s a bit better balanced than their coffee stout, but it’s still not what I would consider their best work. (13/20)
