My wife and I both enjoy this style, and I have been wanting to try more from BP. Poured into his-and-hers nonic pint glasses from a 1pt. 6oz. bomber, about $8.50 retail.

A - pours an appealing cola-brown, almost black color that translates little light. Two fingers of frothy mocha head that, while pleasing to the eye, dissipates fairly quickly.

S - the label boasts locally sourced coffee beans utilized in the brewing process, and they're not kidding. It's all roast coffee on the nose, malty and rich. Not picking up the vanilla as much.

T - now THAT'S a coffee IP! Great coffee up front, roasted nut shells, a little bit of that cola again - likely the vanilla coming through - mid sip. Finishes with strong, bittersweet cocoa powder.

M - very creamy, but not cloying.

O - Ballast Point does it again with this sweet treat.

Poured from bottle into pint glass, black-brown liquid with large and delicious looking cappuccino brown head. Smells heavily of mocha and vanilla. Taste is very vanilla and coffee, very nice but odd finish i couldn't quite place. Very good beer though, would drink again and recommend.
