12 ounce bottle into a pint glass

A - Pours a clear reddish brown body that has a finger thick head. The head is off white and frothy in appearance. Carbonation racing to the head is visible throughout this beer. Good head retention, minutes after the beer still has a nice lace.

S - The beer is rather intoxicating in smell. Strong blast of roasted coffee notes hit your nose initially. A deeper whiff brings along some creamy caramel and toffee notes. Very good smelling beer.

T - Strong coffee notes as expected. In addition to that there is a nice blast of creamy caramel and toffee that follows the coffee.

M - Medium bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation. Entering the mouth the beer has some strong coffee notes which are not as bitter or dry as I was expecting. The carbonation does a nice job of cleansing the palate for the caramel, cream and toffee. However, the finish of this beer is a bit dry and bitter which prevents this from being any higher.

D - An interesting beer that would need to be chosen during cold months of the year without a doubt. I can't imagine having a coffee type brew in the summer, but during the winter it is solid. I would however, avoid having more than one or two of these regardless of the year.
