UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 Bottle. Deep black with a thin cream head and heavy lacing. Strong aromas of coffee, chocolate and milk followed by just a hint of lemon blossom hops. Heavy coffee flavour with a lick of milk chocolate. Luscious, strong mouthfeel at the front of the palate followed by an immaculately integrated dry, bitter finish. Quality stuff.

Coffee-black pour with a yellow-white head. Moderate carbonation. Very strong coffee flavours as expected, however there is no overpowering bitterness that is usually associated with beers that have added coffee. Very light bodied, as it uses lager yeast that makes this beer perfect for the months between summer and winter, as it has qualities suitable for both .

Bottle. Really nice roasty coffee style beer. I kind of wish it had a bit more body but considering it is a lager it’s a mighty tasty beer!

A-- Poured black, with just touches of ruby on the bottom and on the sides. One finger of mocha colored head. Good carbonation and head retention. Good lacing on the sides of the glass. S-- Lots of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Get a touch of lemon bitterness. T-- Pretty straight forward. Coffee and a good deal of it. Some chocolate sweetness and a little bit of lemon from the hops. M-- Higher than medium carbonation and a very dry finish. Coffee and chocolate feel stick around a while. Feels more like a stout more than a lager. Very robust feel to this. good beer

A surprisingly good beer. Pure pitch black poor with an interesting yellow head. Plenty of coffee aroma and slightly burnt grains and molasses. The sickly sweet molasses did begin to take over a little toward the end of the beverage but over all a beer full of tasty interesting flavours.
