COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Macchiato is made with pale, caramel, chocolate, and roasted malts. Oats and lactose are added to give the beer a more robust and sweeter taste. The sweetness of the lactose helps balance the bitterness of the brew just like in the coffee drink, which is our inspiration. The roasted malts give the beer its dark color as well as its intense flavor and aroma. Willamette hops are added to balance out the sweetness of the malts. Finally, PJs Coffee espresso dolce beans are added to the aging tank. This gives the beer a strong coffee flavor and aroma that compliments the existing flavors of the malt.

Mmm, a great balance between sweet & bitter! Pours opaque w/ a thin tan head & little lacing. The aroma is chocolate & lightly roasted coffee. The taste contains chocolate w/ a slight coffee bitterness throughout. The balance is superb w/ an outstanding soft mouthfeel. Very, very good!

Pours a solid black with q tan head and lacing. It has a great coffee aroma with some toast and dark malt too. The flavor is coffee and toasty malt up front with a toasty, semisweet finish over a smooth body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015 A thick oily mouthfeel delivers a rich bitter Espresso flavor and aroma. The coffee component here is way in the forefront, and comes across as very fresh. Bittering hops serve to balance, but the dark roast takes firm hold early on, and does not relinquish control. Black as black can be with a creamy resilient tan head. Would pair well with desserts with a strong caramel component.

Draft. It poured black with a tan head. The aroma and flavor is like a strong cup of black coffee. There is a slight creaminess on the finish.

On tap at the Hollander. Nearly black pour with a slight, tan head. Aroma is brewed coffee, dairy creamer, a little oatmeal. Flavor is similar. Thick but not super-heavy mouthfeel. One of Abitas better offerings.

Deep dark brown pour with a creamy white head. The nose is pretty intense. Bitter cocoa and coffee with a nice roasty malt character on the back. Tasty brew really. Rich and chewy. A little bit of salty character. Lovely.

With Z, pours a pitch black color with a small ephemeral head. Nose is very sweet coffee and mocha. Taste is sweet and sugary coffee with a nice balance of mocha. Finishes on the same sweet sugary notes with the nice balance of chocolate and vanilla. Quaff Score 7 / 10
