look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Serving Type - 22oz bottle

Appearance - Dark black with a nice foamy, tan 1 inch head, tons of lacing.

Smell - Huge coffee aroma. Nuts, smokey malts. Coffee is really overpowering.

Taste - As expected, up front punch of coffee at first sip. Not as aggressive as the smell lead me to believe, the coffee is nice and smooth, lighty sweet, smokey and nutty. Caramel malts add a really nice sweet flavor. Some chocolate along with some raisins and dates come out near the finish to eliminate any bitterness from the coffee.

Mouthfeel - The tongue gets the coffee, smokey malts and nut flavor, where the palate gets the sweet flavors of the malts, along with dark fruits and chocolates. Aftertaste is a mix of coffee and caramel malts.

Overall - Really nice beer. This is really balanced, smooth and easy to enjoy, even for a non coffee drinker like me. Has a great coffee bite mix with sweet malts and chocolate. Excellent beer, a great variation to silk porter, and I will be drinking this again.
