3.81/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

22oz bottle at 41 F split into a pair of chalices. 174 M 0237 201 is the bottle code.

Pours black, with a small head. Head fades slowly. It's opaque, but evidently there is some active carbonation. Smell is very portery. Perhaps even imperially so. Aside from obvious roastiness, there's clearly vanilla and coffee.

Taste is dark fruit, lots of bitter coffee flavor, more dark fruit, lots of roast bitterness.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly light, though not thin. Overall, it's pretty good.

Another thanks to rudzud

Decent smaller dark creamy head, no lacing decent legs, pretty much pitch black.

Nose nice coffee and coconut, lots of coconut oils, fresh roasty coffee, little nougat fluffy carafa, mild dark choc, very mild acrid roast char, mild creaminess. No vanilla.

Taste creamy, nice coconut and coffee right off, fresh roasted coffee, little nutty coffee, mild overall roasty, little chewy too, with fair to mild coconut, into nice bakers choc, and nice but interesting earthy hops, little creamy oats and creamy chocolate. Finish is little drier but sticky, little creamy, etc.

Mouth is med bod, weird gritty and creamy feel on top, decent carb.

Overall interesting but not as good I expected. Coconut is nice on the nose but little on the flavor, decent coffee,

Received as an extra, shared with JLindros and Threelions.

S - Big aromas of coffee, good coconut, no vanilla. Hmm, smells really nice.

T - Taste is really nice coffee, definitely overshadows everything else. Faint chocolate nice, pleasant, no vanilla, light coconut. Mostly just big coffee notes.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly creamy, interesting.

O - Overall this was a tasty beer. Nice coffee, good and tasty.

3.96/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Black with ochre foam.

S - Espresso coffee and roasted malt.

T - A little metallic. Burned malt flavours. Coffee mainly. Not much in the way of vanilla or coconut unfortunately.

M - Thick enough with decent carbonation.

O - Isn't doing anything wrong particularly, although the lack of coconut and vanilla is a little disappointing. It's overall quite bitter and lacks milder, sweeter notes to round it out.
