4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap at the Cambridge Brewing Company brewpub on Saturday 02.27.2010. The menu stated that this was made with espresso beans from Red Barn Coffee in Massachusetts.
Poured a very dark, roasted black with a modest tan head and a bit of lacing as it went down. The aroma was of roasted malt and coffee, with slight hints of dark cocoa coming through. Taste was similar, with the roasted malts dominating. The coffee presence was definitely felt, but nothing completely overpowering like a few other coffee beers I’ve had. Mouthfeel was medium and slightly creamy. Good drinkability.
Serving type: on-tap
