COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Combining jet black color with incredibly smooth texture and decadent coffee flavor, BREWTALITY breaks the expectations of both rich espresso and dark beer to create a whole ’nuther beast. While brutal in alcoholic strength, this biggie beautifully showcases its roasted malt and coffee flavors without bringing on bitterness and bite. This is the first of two lagers in the series."
Re-released as part of "Alaska’s Most Wanted" Series

JStax (7175) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2017
22 ounce bottle from Tavour. Poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a thick black with a khaki head of foam. Strong head retention. Aroma has fig and leather. Coffee complements without distracting from the earthy molasses and leather notes. In the finish, a nice creme brûlée sweetness develops. Big body with a moderate carbonation level. Good stuff.

This is what well-executed beer tastes like! The rich burn malts, the espresso flavors, the coffee house aromas! It all works! Thanks guys. Sample @ bottlecraft

Dark brown, thin head, lots of chocolate and a nice touch of coffee on the nose. On the palate I think the coffee is a bit harsh and vegetal, with a chocolatey accent. I don’t know, thin coffee overtop a mediocre schwarzbier? I feel like I’m being generous here because I wouldn’t drink this again.

Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2017
0.65l bottle @ Hotel Room. This is a deeper brown looking one only a small quickly islandy dark beige head in the top. Smells really nice. It has a good darker roasted aroma. Acidic hints, cold dark coffee. Nice. It’s really on the sweeter path this. Not cloying but not too far off either. It’s mild oily in the mouth and about average on the carbonation. Sweetish coffee. Like it’s been added brown sugar. Traces of vanilla and cream. Ends with a throat warming flak roasted taste. The first few sips were nice, but now almost finished with the bottle I’m not sure if I would want to drink more of this. 20.06.2015

Eh. This had a pretty strong coffee flavor, yet wasn’t all that thick. Probably because it’s a porter and not a stout. However, it was quite sweet, much more than I expected or could enjoy.

Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
A deep dark lager with a thin mocha head. In aroma, bean paste, light coffee grind, musty character, so-so. In mouth, a rather herbaceous chocolate malt, grassy hops , Tim Horton coffee, boring. Bottle at Big Matt’s Eclipse tasting.

3.8
BuckeyeBoy (8469) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 13, 2016
22oz bottle pours out dark brown almost black topped with a tan head. Nose is nice roast malts chocolate some pit fruit. Taste is more of the roast malts coffee notes and a nice milk chocolate.
