Bottle acquired via trade with NJpadreFan
Had for breakfast on 10/16/07
Looked good. Sticky black lacing on the glass. Very little light penetrating through
Smelled good. A lot of coffee in the nose. LOTS of coffee. This beer reminded me a lot of the KBS which reminded me of a homebrew failure I made about a year ago. The coffee is just overpowering and then the bitter chocolate comes through and makes for a bit of a mess for me. Obviously I am not in the majority as this is, at time of review, #12 on BA's top 100.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin for me, not watery, but with all these conflicting tastes in my mouth, I expected the malt to help balance a bit more, which for me means a thicker, maltier beer.
This is a good beer and I am glad I have another bottle waiting for me, just doesn't live up to the hype for me
