I have had the pleasure of having this beer a few times; just finally getting around to reviewing it.

22oz bottle poured into a White Birch glass. This one pours and aggressively daunting looking black with coca-cola colored highlights that may only be seen whilst in mid-pour. A massive, crushed Oreo cookie colored head cascades into life. The head looks like an impenetrable force; solid as a rock. It slowly fades out of existence and leaves behind it some really decent looking lace. What a great looking head though!

The nose on this guy is almost what I was hoping for. Freshly ground and roasted black coffee, bitter chocolate and burnt oatmeal cookies make up the profile. The nose is really quite satisfying but lacking a few elements I would have liked to pick up on.

The taste seems to be on par with the nose, but then becomes a bit overwhelming for me. An intense wave of coffee is what hits my taste buds first. It is very bitter, and almost seems acrid. It is like a pot of coffee being made with too much water; the flavors are over-diluted and you are left with a lingering bitterness. The chocolate just manages to squeeze through at the finish but is too muted to help at this point.

The prickly carbonation helps the drinkability on this one. It is actually modestly smooth but a bit less chewy and viscous than I was originally hoping for. The alcohol is clearly present to me but not overbearing.

Overall, this one wasn't bad by any means, I did enjoy it. I simply found it to be a bit too much. The bitter coffee notes ran wild and subdued the other subtle flavors I was hoping to find here. I really wish to try the regular version of this beer now as I think that will be more suitable to me.
