3.82/5 rDev -0.5%
500ml bottle, poured into a Bell's snifter 8/15/2014.
A- Medium brown body, slightly hazy. Pours silky smooth with a half finger white head with fairly minimal retention, no lacing.
S- Lots of coffee and tapioca, brown sugar and a bit of oak. Sort of like iced tea with coffee.
F- The flavours of coffee, sweet toffee, tapioca, brown sugar and oak have melded together very well to make for a relatively unique drinking experience. No single component dominates the blend which seems to come forth from the blending of all of these flavours rather than any one flavour standing out.
M- Medium in body, a bit undercarbonated but not enough to detract significantly from the experience. Finish is remniscent of milk tea.
O- Solid drinker, nothing complicated but also nothing offensive to be found in this beer.

Poured from the bottle into my gargantuan tulip glass. A dark amber body with three fingers of off-white head: a slight reddish tinge to the head as well.
Smell is coffee and malt, all sweetness and roast.
This one's a bit of a flavor coaster from start to finish. All very pleasant and tasty: sweet malt and coffee up front. Not black coffee, more like a latte. At the very back end, the slightest hop bitterness. Very complex and enjoyable.
Mouthfeel is rich, but maybe too heavy on the carbonation.
Overall, a solid beer. Side note: I love the label artwork. Creepy and detailed.
