A: Dark Brown with mahogany highlights. thin tan head.
S: Dark Milk Chocolate. Roasty cuban espresso with dark raw sugar. sweet creamy.
T: as the smell suggests but with more roasted grain and malt characters. Nice wave of chocolate, espresso, and cream at first. Sweet but not lingeringly sweet. relatively dryer finish. The coffee flavors are wonderful. Best coffee beer IMO.
MF: thick and creamy. silky. low carbonation, just enough to tingle when swallowed.
D: My favorite CC Brew. So glad they decided to bottle it! A bit filling but there is no need to slam a bunch of these beers, better to savor every drop.

Appearance - Pours a deep brown with auburn highlights and a finger's worth of khaki head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of surface suds. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass, though most slides .
Smell - Freshly roasted coffee ground aroma, backed by a lesser scent of caramel. Light cream with faint chocolate notes.
Taste - Follows the nose. Big, natural coffee flavor. Caramel finds a nice niche, while hints of vanilla and cream bounce off the middling roasty attributes. Touches of nuttiness and chocolate in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Nice, smooth finish.
Overall - Really solid coffee-infused brew. Delivers more than just a 'cold coffee' experience. My heart tells me a deeper roasted flavor would be nice, but my brain tells me this is a brown, so I shouldn't expect that. A fine brown it is.
