Draft @ Mikkeller Bar

Black body with a light brown head. Leaves some lace and brown film when swirled.

Tons of coffee, vanilla, and chocolate on this thing. I get a little fruitiness in there as well on the taste. Man, so much coffee goodness in here. Def comes through better than in the BA version. The load of vanilla and chocolate balances out the coffee though.

Tastes excellent.

Serving type: on-tap

A-Pours laughably thick. Pen ink. Zero light penetration. It sits like oil in the glass and leaves alcohol legs. It also spawns a dark brown, doughy head that settles down to a finger's width. It leaves brow freckles and scars along the glass.

S-Smells like fudge and cocoa powder and nibs. The vanilla is impressively potent. Genuine vanilla, nearly like vanilla extract. Burnt maltiness, black coffee and pure roast. Vanilla and fudge are impressive here.

T-The brownie and fudge melts over the tongue. Then comes the French vanilla ice cream flavor. Dark roast coffee with espresso as well. Bitter roast and burnt oats on the finish but much sweeter than bitter overall. A little bit nutty. Finish is vanilla, espresso and liquified chocolate.

M-Chewy, oily, decadent. Perfect amount of heat. Ultra creamy. Body is huge. Softer carbonation. Lingering flavors.

O-Rich, ooey-gooey. A full-force flavor delivery system in a bottle. Something that Mayan kings would get drunk off. I split the 12 oz. bottle and could see this being taken down alone could become a bit of a chore but one I would gladly participate in.

12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a very viscous black with a small cap of mocha head. Average retention and lace.

Nose is coffee, chocolate, black licorice, herbal hops and alcohol...kind of a strange brew of everything thrown together. Kind of a mess, really. And where the fuck is the vanilla?

Tastes like old Folger's coffee grounds mixed with vodka. Ugh, maybe this is a bad bottle? I dont know but whatever it is is not working right. The viscosity would be appreciated if there was some good flavors here, but this is just a complete mess.
