12 oz bottle into flying dog chalice. freshest by: 12/18/12.
A: dark murky brown hue. head is off white without being very prominent. retention is a rim and lacing is sparse.
S: bittersweet aroma. coffee and chocolate come to mind immediately. a little bit of licorice. i was hoping for more in your face coffee character here.
T: bitter cocoa flavor keeps things dry throughout. however there are undertones of residual unfermentables. dry coco powder.
M: average carb on a medium body.
D: not bad, just not blown away. like i said about the nose, and even on the body, this needs more coffee. a lot more coffee.

single from the Beer Shoppe, Ardmore
a: twelve oz bottle into a Hilliard’s can glass, the beer is black in color, initially showing a thin but full coating of mocha carbonation that falls to only a thin ring
s: a very nice aroma of cold-brewed dark roast coffee sits very well forward here, supported further by malty aromas of chocolate roast and nutty toasted sugars and toffee, the malts mostly hidden at first but showing themselves with warmth, mostly benign hops
m: carbonation on the low to moderate end, medium bodied
t: the palate blends smooth, cold-roasted dark coffee with some sweet malt notes of toffee and nuts, dark chocolate hitting midway with a grassy hop cleaning things up and providing a milder bitter end, again the coffee stars here from start to finish, lingers long
o: the coffee flavor is very well executed - fresh and vivid, and the base beer supports it well
