4.01/5 rDev -4.1%
A - Pours a pitch black color with an extremely dense, thick, creamy layer of light toffee colored foam, the lacing clings to the side of the glass like glue.
S - The nose is dominated with expresso, cream, and dark roasted chocolate.
T - Heavy on the expresso, coffee bean, and dark roasted malt character. Coffee beans are present from start to finish, light oak, and finishes with a nice bitter roasted chocolate and coffee bean/expresso bitterness with some citrus added in.
M - Medium body and creamy smooth mouthfeel.
O - A solid beer, glad I had the opportunity to try it, worth at least one sample but not a stand out in the crowd.

Pours a clear deep brown with amber highlights and a half inch khaki head that dissipates to a thin film.
Aroma is reminiscent of pepper fruitiness, espresso, and roast malt.
Chocolate shines through, with lots of roast, coffee. Too much coffee for my liking, but clean.
Moderate to full body with moderate carbonation.
Too much coffee for my liking, but a good beer underneath.

On tap @ Pizza Plant in Buffalo, NY
The beer pours a dark black-brown with a thin halo of tan head. The nose is slightly hoppy, espresso forward, malty, and slightly woody. The taste is unarguably a coffee black IPA (which I initially doubted given the improbability of this offering over the expected Russian imperial stout with espresso), with the malt sweetness carrying a bitter coffee bean and hop finish. The mouthfeel is relatively medium bodied with a drinkable coffee, black IPA base that incorporates flavors that work well without clashing. I'll try dayman soon for comparison, but in the meantime I'd recommend trying this interesting variation.
