Bottle poured into a Lagunitas mason jar

A: Pours deep dark brown with a fitting frothy cappuccino light brown head that settles and laces well.

S: Coffee, roasted malt, a little dark bready and earthy goodness, and some toffee sweetness.

T: Good strong coffee leads the way, followed with more roasty malt, toffee malt sweetness, faint vanilla, a hint of cocoa, dare I say a little fig and dark fruit, and a touch of alcohol.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Was expecting a richer, sweeter brew. It's still ok, but not my favorite.

This is a wonderful beer. The coffee flavor is not as pronounced as I prefer but still good. Its got a great black coffee bitterness.

Very good investment for a beer. The Alc. is 9%, and the cost is small; not to mention, the taste is good.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip.

A: Pour is jet black with a huge, sticky head of light brown foam that is 3 fingers in size. After several minutes the head settles to a perfect looking crown that stays for the remainder of the beer. Lots of lacing and excellent head retention.

S: Immediately you get hit with massive aromas of roastiness with fresh brewed coffee. As the beer warms I'm getting a touch of sweetness, maybe lactose.

T: Big flavors of fresh roasted coffee with some roasted malts in the background. The coffee definitely dominates the flavor, but it is perfectly done and is not too strong or overwhelming.

M: Light-medium body with a low amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth but a bit on the thin side. No bitterness on the finish but it is somewhat dry.

O: Overall I thought this was an outstanding beer. The thing I love about this beer is that it is without a doubt centered around the coffee. The coffee is definitely the main player as opposed to faintly existing along with chocolate and big roasted malt flavors (as in some imperial stouts for example.) If you love coffee, I would highly recommend this beer. I am definitely getting a few bombers of this with my next haul!
