3.53/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Dark coffee color. Poured a thin tan-colored head. Heavy, clinging lacing on the glass.

S: Heavy roasted malt; caramel and chocolate. Coffee bitterness in the background.

T: Big flavors of coffee (almost too much), dark roasted malts and a touch of sweet caramel.

M: Big body. Low carbonation. Made for a beer that was smooth and silky...really well done.

D: For a big beer, surprisingly drinkable; I had 5 glasses out of the growler overa couple hours.

Nitro tap at the Aspen Tap Room in downtown Aspen.
A great looking brew with a finger and half of tan cream colored head on a pitch black body.
The aroma is a faint roasted malt.
The taste is all bitter/sweet with a dose of roasted malt. Great balance.
Smooth and creamy texture. Low carbonation and heavy body.
A really enjoyable beer; just a little more on the nose would make it really great.

Had on tap at the Aspen Brewing Tap Room. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a nice deep black, slight khaki head, killer lacing!

S: Molasses, coffee and vanilla dominate the nose.

T: Follows the nose, very sweet. Loads of roast! Some almost fruity qualities reminiscent of light roast coffee. Perhaps some very subtle chocolate.

M: Somewhat thin, but leaves you wanting more. Adequate carbonation leaves it nicely smooth. Very slight dry finish.

O: A really nice beer, almost borders on a stout with the roastyness. I love the coffee and roast notes.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: slow pour from the tap, no head, pitch black
S: mildly roasted coffee, traces of caramel, nothing special
T: bam! coffee 2 creams 5 sugars! tons of coffee with a roasted maltiness and an insane toffee sweetness (possibly too sweet for most folk). a bit of caramel and vanilla join the party. long, smooth, and super sweet finish.
M: impressively smooth and creamy, barely any carbonation
O: dessert beer all the way. had 2 after dinner and couldn't have been happier.
