4.48/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Picked up a single at Total Wine back in mid-August for $6.99. Bottled in June 2013.

Beer poured black with a nice tan head that is leaving a bit of lacing behind.

Nose is intense with espresso, mocha, roasted barley.

Taste is espresso forward, some vanilla and cocoa, roasted malts. Hopping and roastiness keep the sweetness at bay.

Mouthfeel is lighter than expected - medium bodied but very smooth.

Overall this is a world class brew, espresso is awesome, lots of flavor layers going on and a delightful feel to it. Worth every penny - treat yourself to this if you can find it.

4.56/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.

A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.

S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.

T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.

M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.

Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
