4.19/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45°F

Appearance: Pitch black with a one finger brown creamy head

Smell: Fresh ground coffee beans followed by a hint of chocolate and booze

Taste: Rich kona coffee upfront with a undertone of chocolate playing in the background which carries throughout the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Heavy medium body; Goes down smooth but with a bitter espresso finish. Slight alcohol presence as well

Overall: Considering the ratings and hype, this is a let down to me. At fridge temperature I get nothing but coffee in the taste and aroma. As it warms, the beer opens up a bit and chocolate is present. It's not overly complex but the coffee and chocolate characteristics do play nicely with each other. The mouthfeel is thinner and more bitter than I had expected as well. I prefer FIS to this. Overall it's a well made beer but in my opinion not perfect as both BA and The Bros suggest. Will have to reevaluate
