look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark brownish black color with a foamy 1.5 fingered head that lingers while slowly dissipating and leaving a fine lacing on the side of the glass.

S: Heavy notes of chocolate and coffee with a little bit of roasted malts detectable. Not a whole lot else, most everything is masked by the coffee.

T: Again heavy on the coffee notes with dark chocolates and roasted malts. Not a whole lot else, like the nose.

M: Heavy on the tongue with some creaminess and a medium-low amount of carbonation.

O: Overall, fantastic. This could easily accompany any breakfast. Quite delicious.

4.53/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into pint glass at about 55-60 degrees F.

A: Sludgy deep black color with a dark caramel 2 finger head that fell rather quickly. Some sticky lacing, but not much.

S: Semi-sweet chocolate, roasty coffee, floral hops, some boozy alcohol.

T: Silky smooth rich chocolate and mild dark coffee & milk mixing with bits of spice and hop bite. Finishes just a little bitter, lactic, and dry.

M: Incredible, full bodied, chewy, smooth as silk. Way too drinkable for the ABV.

O: Bought the last single bottle at work until next year; so glad that I did. I could definitely have this as a coffee replacement in my breakfast.
