look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
12oz bottle poured into a large snifter.
A: Pitch black on the pour. A finger and a half of head settles into nothing very shortly. Lacing is spotty and minimal.
S: Intensely aromatic espresso and coffee roast. Bittersweet dark chocolate. Carob. Slightly nutty. Hints of plum darkfruit.
T: As in the nose, espresso and coffee flavors hit hard and fast. Deep roasty and nutty coffee flavors build until they reach their apex toward the finish. Roasted malts lend bittersweet dark chocolate tastes that compliment the coffee beautifully. Bitterness and acidity stay fairly modest. Plum darkfruit remains hidden. Kiss of smoke. Long finish of espresso and dark chocolate.
M: Thick and chewy in texture, large in body but not overly so. It has that creamy whipped texture that one would expect from a latte. Very little in the way of carbonation.
O: This is a very enjoyable beer from top to bottom, and one of the absolute best coffee beers bar none. Not the most complex of its ilk, but it provides a purely hedonistic drinking experience that's tough to match. This has long been a personal favorite of mine.
