look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - dark coffee like pour with a small 1/2" head. Granted this was in a plastic cup. But a plastic cup is better than not all at.

Smell - excellent coffee aroma comes through with hints of vanilla.

Taste - amazingly smooth taste as the coffee continue with hints of vanilla.

Mouthfeel - at 10% abv this leaves a slight alcohol mouthfeel and I prefer my beer to hide the alcohol.

Overall - amazing beer even in a plastic cup. Would have loved to get a growler fill but totally didn't expect this type of beer where we stopped for dinner.
