From bottle to snifter.

I couldn't find a year, only a month and day for when the beer was brewed. Oh well.

I'm surprised that there's not much of a head on this beer. It's only about a quarter-finger thick and quickly dissipates. Lacing is also scarce. The beer is otherwise pitch-black with some mild carbonation visible.

As the label suggests, I get a dark roasted coffee aroma with my first whiff. It's not as overpowering as I'd expect. There's also some sweetness and chocolate present. Maybe some vanilla. It's a good aroma, but still fairly subdued.

I'm really impressed with the coffee flavor here. It's dark and roasty, but really moderate and not overbearing. It's an excellent coffee that went into this. But it's not just coffee I'm drinking. There's plenty of tasteful sweetness in here and a creamy, almost lactose-like component making this closer to coffee with milk. I'd say it's like a vanilla hazelnut latte or something along those lines. A tasty coffee treat.

Plus, this drinks really mellow-like. There's no alcohol heat. Nothing to heavy or unpleasant. It's smooth, has a slight carbonation, and a creamy feel. There's a burnt character that lingers on the finish, maybe even providing some oak or wood character, but even this is nice and mellow.

I'm a fan of this beer. The appearance didn't blow me away and the smell was good, but not great, but the taste and mouthfeel are next level. A true joy to drink.
