First had: on tap at Pizza Boy

I found the base beer to be pretty much undrinkable, and while the coffee version was an improvement, it was unfortunately not much of an improvement.

The appearance was similar to the base: opaque black with a small tan head that receded to a filmy layer. Aroma of obvious coffee up front, dark malts, a touch of smoke, fusel alcohol. The booze hits right up front and never really goes away, but in this version, at least the coffee takes the edge off a little, notes of tobacco, and liquid smoke, with that stale malt liquor taste ever present. The coffee was a nice touch, but overall, it just can't really save the beer. Body was medium, boozy heat was noticeable; not a smooth beer at all. Like it's counterpart this is quite messy, and I almost couldn't finish the small pour that I had.
