A: Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Obviously deep black in color with a thin lightly dark head that creeps its way to the edges leaving a decent trail on the glass as you drink.
S: I love the smell of this beer even though i don't even care for coffee. The rich chocolate malts are complemented so well by the coffee.
T: A pretty rich beer that at times can come off a little sweet. The coffee, chocolate, and slight roast are presented exquisitely in this brew. Depending in how fresh you obtain this beast, you could get a good amount of heat from it.
M: A sweet offering that offers plenty of body and moderate to low carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed this beer though i could only take down no more then one bomber to myself. Even that is pushing it. Great but wish it was a tad bit mor dry.

Poured a black body with two finger tan head that dies slow with no lace. Aroma ranges from coffee, vanilla, espresso, milk/lactic qualities, hints of milk chocolate. For a heavy beer the alcohol is hidden and the beer is rather light and smooth. More sweet than dry as the roasted coffee notes are easily noticed but the beer seems to slightly dominated by milk/vanilla sweetness. An enjoyable beer on its own or as dessert.
Serving type: on-tap
