APPEARANCE: Deep, dark black with a head somewhere between off-white and coffee colored. Within 30 seconds the head disappears into a few wisps and a ring around the glass. A few bubbles can be seen trickling up the side of the glass.
SMELL: The coffee aroma is powerful. A good dose of wood mingles with the coffee. After a few sniffs a hint of chocolate is also present.
TASTE: Wow. This might be the most coffee-like beer I have tried. The bitterness is intense, but it is all about the coffee, not the hops in this regard. Roasty, woody and slightly chocolatey would round out the rest of this beer. A tiny bit of citrus also peaks through towards the end.
MOUTHFEEL: The beer goes down very smooth and it is medium bodied, lighter than I expected. The front has a touch of sweetness, but the back end is dry.
OVERALL: I enjoyed this beer the first time I had it on tap about a year ago, but sitting at home, focused on it, I am much happier with it. I probably won't reach for this one regularly, but when I'm in the mood to mix it up a bit I can see myself going for it again. I am thoroughly enjoying the complexity of this well-crafted beer.
