Pours a semi-opaque dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Smells like the inside of my coffee bean hopper. Yum.

Rich notes of cocoa, french pressed coffee, and dark berry skins. Snappy hops. Alcohol is huge, maybe a bit too huge. I might sound like a diabetic saying this but I could have used a touch more malt. Or -- a decrease in alcohol. This is a bit too boozy. I really like the overall flavor, though, and find besides the alcohol, it has a nice hop balance. The booze, coupled with the bitter coffee-wearing-a-hops dress finish, is a bit harsh on the palate.

Medium-full bodied. Dry, prickly finish. And as for the identified style here on BA, I first thought this was maybe an Imperial Brown of some ilk.

Sixpoint is solid and so is this brew. I don't know if I'd buy more than one at a time, though. One is probably enough for now.
