We made beer floats by combining this with sweet cream liqueur. Absolutely delicious!!!
A= Poured into a Surly Pint glass, the beer exhibits the color of an October midnight - black. The head is thick and off-white/brown in color upon pour and disipates rather quickly into fine lace.
S= Aroma showed deeply toasted malts combined with expresso and roasted hazelnuts.
T= A cooperative combination of brown ale flavor with a lighter than expected coffee enhancement. Malty, earthy, and nutty with some fruity essence.
M= A little thinner than expected for such a dark beer. A decent finish makes up for thinness.
D= As stated above, we did beer floats. This made the experience more fun and added a unique dimension as the coffee up front was followed by rich, sweet cream. On it's own, I would be hesitant to have more than one at a time.
