On-tap at Strong Ale 2011

Pours nearly black in color with a khaki/tan head. A strong aroma of earthy coffee. Tons of fresh espresso/coffee notes with the roast of the beer being accentuated. There are still some tropical and citrus hop notes in the background. The flavor is similarly heavy on the coffee. Tons of espresso with an underlying flavor of citrus hops to go along with the roast. Not as much in the way of booze as the regular version has.

Serving type: on-tap

The ALMOST perfect beer...
Held up in my brandy glass with a wonderful tan foamy head. I sat at Vinsettas Garage
(Berkeley Mi) and looked at it for 5 minutes. The smell was chocolate/coffee/ molasses. it entered my mouth with excitement. slick/soft mouthfeel. rich dark espresso with a soft bitter finish. oh my deliciousness.
