Pours a dark red colour, raisiny I guess. Light head when poured, disappears to nothing after a while. No lace. Decent colour, otherwise bland.

Woah, coffee galore, that's a pick-me-up. Deep roast on the nose but powdered coffee in character, largely sweet but with phenolic and spicy hints at the edges. Not much edge to it, but nice.

Taste starts our very weak, with hints of roast espresso but largely just watered-down toasty bitterness. Nothing really asserts itself until the finish and even thin it's a sheepish whimper rather than a yell. Weak, watered down with mild hints here and there of instant coffee. Really unimpressed.

Watery, not a lot of substance at all. For 7% I'm surprised at how weak and thin this is.

Really disappointed, especially after the wham of coffee aroma I got. I've had coffee from 7-11 with more flavour than this.

Had on-tap at the Local Taphouse in Darlinghurst for the Mikkeller Tap Takeover. On the home stretch, this was beer #16 of 20.

Pours a deep and dark black-brown, with a good fluidity to the brew, and rather light bodied. Head is firm and extremely fine, a lovely light brown colour. Decent lacing. Looks good.

Nose is sharp with coffee and rounded malt, giving a creamy sweetness to the beer. Hint of something savoury to it, but overall it's smooth and solid, with the coffee giving it an edge.

Taste is bright and rather light, but with a lingering coffee character on the back. Cleansing, sharp and crisp on the finish, but the smoothness on the front is really nice.

Very decent brew. It's perhaps a little lighter in body than it should be, especially for 7% ABV, but it's drinkable, and flavoursome and has a good deal of interest to it.
