look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Nice deep copper in color. Brilliant clarity. Pours with not much head. A small ring of tiny white bubbles leave a nice ring around the edges of the glass.

S: Coffee's the first thing you'll notice and while prominent, it's still pretty subtle. I find myself searching for the roasty, chocolate notes you usually in the stouts that most often make the base for coffee beers. Medium malt sweetness, no noticeable hop aroma. No esters. A very clean aroma.

T: Strong coffee flavor. Refreshingly smooth, no trace of roastiness. Malt sweetness comes mid-palate to remind you that this isn't a cup of iced java. Despite the lack of hop flavor, this finishes far toward the bitter side...

M: Mouthfeel is a bit higher for this style than normal but it pairs with the flavor quite well. Carbonation is low. Low creaminess. Bitterness stays with you, leaving the corners of your mouth tingling.

D: Very well constructed beer. The coffee flavor ends up canceling out any of the subtlety of the base beer so that's a bit of a bummer. Quite appealing otherwise.
