Taster at the brewery - these guys just don’t seem to do coffee infusion all that well - the coffee character is much better than in the Nightmare Fuel I had last night, but is still rather sharp and acidic - the rye character is also a bit boozy, so that doesn’t help much - the nose is quite inciting (espresso and mellow rye), but the flavor is fairly sharp - slick mouthfeel, low carbonation. wchesser (2180) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2016 Fresh bottle. Dark black with espresso crema colored head. Opaque and medium heavy body. Nose is massive high quality dark roast coffee...probably the most coffee I’ve ever had in a beer before. Taste is lightly sweet with flavor of rich, dark roast coffee, dark malts and dark chocolate, light barrel. Incredibly smooth. As good as this is, it is kind of one-dimensional.
