I picked up a bottle (bomber) of this in Pagosa Springs back in August based on the recommendation of the liquor store owner.

The beer pours excessively foamy, producing a head that fills the entire glass and takes forever to dissipate. I found this a bit problematic and suppose I should deduct some points for it, but the beer and head were pretty good looking. The beer looked like engine oil and the head formed huge peaks of khaki-colored froth, so it wasn't all bad.

The smell threw me off a bit, as the first aroma I got was soury and vinegar-like. This completely distracted from the coffee and chocolate notes that were present and actually seemed promising.

The taste too was affected by a bit of sourness, very much like the sour beers Three Beers makes. It got me wondering if maybe something had crept into the batch. Still, the beer had a great roasty, toasted coffee and dark chocolate taste, so I found it to be a pretty good tasting beer.

The mouthfeel suffered a bit due to the sourness and occasional blasts of carbonation, but again, overall didn't detract much from the beer.

Overall, this beer seems to a have a lot of potential and seems to have been affected by the other beers Three Beers brews or by something during the bottling process. However, it was still good, so I'd love to taste one again in the future.
