A: Pours a dark, dark, cola brown with a two finger light tan head
S: The coffee is very apparent, almost overwhelming. Also get a lot of dark English malts and quite a bit of milk chocolate.
T: Coffee, coffee, coffee. That's more or less it. A lot of sweetness as well, almost like the way an iced mocha would taste, quite taken aback by this one. Also get that milk chocolate again.
M: Somewhat thin, not tons of carbonation, but very smooth and silky
Overall this was a very unique one. Drank more like a porter than any brown ale I've ever had, and I loved the sweetness of it.

Appearance is a clear dark brown color with a half finger head.
Aroma is incredible. Roasted coffee beans, and roasty malt. Maple bacon coffee porter aroma minus the syrupy maple smell.
Taste is sweet at first but dark roasted coffee dominates after that. Maybe some bittersweet chocolate flavors as well.
Mouthfeel is thin but the coffee flavor does linger slightly on the back end.
This is a great alternative to an after dinner coffee. The body is thin enough to not put you over the edge. The carbonation is there but not too much.
Nicely done and I'm thankful I got to try it.
Serving type: can
