Four pack purchased at FreeBridge

Dark brown body, ruby highlights, and a magnificent light tan head which rose above the rim and held with terrific cohesion.

Wonderful inviting cocoa and coffee aroma.

Taste is coffee and chocolate, along with raisins and other dark fruits. Well masked alcohol.

Medium plus mouthfeel. Could have been chewier.

Tasty, enjoyable. Grab while you can.

Poured from a 12oz can into a glass.

Poured mahogany with ruby hues. Big head of off white foam and lots of carbonation.

Smells slightly burnt and metallic. Definite strong "day old" coffee aroma with some herbal notes.

Decent coffee flavor with a bitter hop finish. Not much chocolate to speak of.

Overall a pretty tasty brew, not as epic as I would have hoped but a good effort. Good mouthfeel and a decent amount of carbonation.

12oz can. Purchased for ~$3. Best before July 2013.

A- Dark brown body with good clarity. A bit hazy due to the last cm of the can having some mild sediment. Big rocky light brown head with lots of lacing and good retention.

S- Brown sugar, cola, figs, chocolate, and sweetened diner coffee. It's a very sugary nose. It's a very syrupy sweetness with light notes of coffee.

T- Really sweet. Roast flavors from the coffee atop an almost overly sugary sweetness. Brown sugar malt flavors with a cocoa nib bitterness. The sweetness continues to build as the beer warms with really mild roast flavors that are overwhelmed. The hop bitterness is relatively mild when held up to the malt profile. The flavors just don't compliment each other. The roast flavors are too mild and the sweetness too big.

MF- The mouthfeel is medium with soft and somewhat low carbonation. It's just too soft. I'd prefer a creamier feel and I feel that this carbonation does not support the flavors appropriately.

O- This beer is okay. I enjoy coffee beers, I love porters and stouts, but this beer just did not come together for me. That's not to say that it's not a good beer, but just not to me.
