Quick review, not my ordinary thing but... eh.
Pours a rich dark brown to black, the head is a deep milk chocolate brown that quickly dissipates. Is noticeably not thick or oily. Has some light shades of deep red around the fringes when held to the light.
The nose comes off with sweetened coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts. A bit of a Belgian stout character to it in a way. Even a tad floral in sweetness. Soft but quite nice and defined, yet not overwhelming.
Tastes really quite nice, tad on the sweet side but certainly not cloying. A very fine and pleasant sweetness that reminds me a lot of getting the perfect sweet ice tea or a great sweetened iced coffee. Flavors coincide with mentioned. Black tea, coffee, chocolate, sweet cinnamon and just a hint of chipotle. Chipotle just gives a very tad warmth but the beer remains fresh and quite nice. Speaking of fresh, the beer itself has this breeziness to it, this freshness which is hard to explain. Could be the water used. But I've noticed this in the coconut porter they do as well.
Mouthfeel is light and slippery, has a pinch of dryness that I wish there was just a bit more of. Would have liked to see a bit more lightness, and maybe fluffiness to the beer too. But overall it is very drinkable but full of flavor.
I'd buy it this again, it would be a good beer to take to a friendly beer tasting. Fun and interesting!
