4.15/5 rDev -4.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - A finger's worth of medium khaki colored slightly lush slightly creamy head... Moderate retention yields a minimal splotchy lacing and thin to moderate collar... Opaque semigloss black in color... Carbonation bubbles clings to the sides of the snifter...
S - The nose was a bit underwhelming... Some roasted malt... Light bitter chocolate... The coffee was mostly absent...
T - Roasted malt dominates the start... There are some light milk chocolate notes... A bit of caramel... A hint of soy sauce... The coffee was suprisingly understated to start, but rises towards the finish... It takes a very nice strong french pressed yet very smooth nature... Nice balance and complexity...
M -Sturdy... On the lighter side of full bodied... Sleek... A bit viscous... A bit chewy... Very lightly carbonation... Smooth yet dense... Even and consistent sip after sip...
D - This one is a sipper and a definite one and done kind of brew... Lots of character and depth... Well rounded... This is the best Pizza Boy offering I've had to date without question... This one is a winner...

On initial try, the sweettness was a bit much for me, and maybe even too much coffee. Holy shit, I never thought I'd sat that. After a while the huge blast of flavor became more acceptable and I appreciated more the great coffeehouse smell and the silky smooth texture. My choice of meal, ham and cheese calzone, didn't go with the beer at all and probably didn't do the taste any favors. Looking forward to trying this sans food or with a better match, but it's a damn good java stout anyway.
