Pours a nice dark brown with some red highlights, small tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is a soft chocolate and a light Malt and nice coffee. Flavor is a mellow coffee with a nice hint of chocolate and a subtle roast. Fantastic flavor of coffee one of the best i have had. A very well done beer.

A - Brown pour with a cola colored foam. Nice lacing and a slight carbonation.
s - The smell of coffee bean is incredible. Easily among the best I've ever come across. Rich coffee beans that beckon back to coffeehouses. Roasted bean, caramel malt, and a bit of english toffee. Intoxicating.
T - Smooth as silk. Tasted slightly like tiramisu. Coffee flavor was akin to a good cigar (no irony there). Reserved taste, roasty flavor. Could pass for a nice latte.
M - Another positive is how mellow this beer is. not heavy, not overpowering, and well balanced. I had a couple of these and would love to session this on a late night. Heck, maybe some caffeine in this.
O - Mightbe my new favorite from CCB. If bottles make their way up here I'm in. Coffee lovers need to try this one.
