Bought in a six pack in Boulder, CO
First off, this is what a dark beer ought to look like. The head is extremely velvety, and though it thins out throughout the drinking process, it always retains some and the lacing is beautiful.
The smell of dark, dark roasted malts pervades the entire fragance of this beer, and they are certainly tasty smelling malts.
The flavour of this beer is dominated primarily by the same malts prevalent in the nose and truly remind me of dark roast coffee. The flavour of alcohol is certainly also prevalent in this brew, albeit not so much so, that it is overpowering. Rather, it actually complements the coffee flavour
The mouthfeel is exactly as every beer ought to have. The water for this beer is certainly of high quality and is extremely soft on the palate.
A great beer, would certainly buy again
