Really wasn’t sure if I should add this but it’s a different beer than the other two entries. Black pour with deep red edges. Completely flat from a firkin. nose is fresh espresso, coffee, chocolate burnt coffee aromas, morning coffee shop all over. alcohol, and some bready malt aromas. Flavor is malts heavy coffee cream, roasted chocolate and intense bitter coffee. Bitter finish and roasty. warm with alcohol. Oily silky mouthfeel and zero carbonation. I liked this version over the regular.
