Poured on tap into a snifter at ChurchKey DC. Listed as brewed with Chocolate, Sumatra and Kona coffee (Aug 2011).

A foamy dark brown dark chocolate big head is produced that sits on a jet black body. It sits... and sits.. and sits. There it is with big retention and aggressiveness in all it's creamy glory. While drinking giant circular sticky rings of lace just coat the glass, leaving a few chocolate looking marshmallow caps in the middle. Just a fantastic looking beer.

Nose just gives the goods. Giant fresh ground ripped coffee beans with dark chocolate notes. Intensely coffee forward, cream, and other glory. Blurs the line for beer, just a mix of impressive creation and hint of greatness to come.

Taste is all that and still a bag of chips. Morning ritual espresso with typical silky texture and creaminess. Chocolate maintains some dark bitter hints that flow without the beers malt, but gets whipped up, almost frothy. Malt backbone almost completely masked in a frenzy of milky thick coffee and chocolate.

I just love this beer to death, and it is more coffee dominant on tap it seems than its bottled brother. If I could borrow a cheesy line, it goes "it doesn't get any better than this." (or does it?). Cheers to Founders!

Serving type: on-tap
