Release #22. Pitch black, small khaki head, some splotchy lacing. Coffee bomb on the nose. Tons of freshly brewed dark roast. Dark semi-sweet chocolate. A bit sweet and smoky, with very little alcohol presence.
Flavor profile is also decidedly coffee-forward. Bittersweet upfront then dry on the finish. Residual sugars are pretty well attenuated. American hops lend bitterness but not much flavor, letting the dark malts, cocoa, and especially coffee shine. Not sure if this release was barrel-aged as I don't really get any whiskey barrel character. Mouthfeel is very smooth and silky, but it could be more viscous and chewy.
This came out as a total coffee bomb, and an exceptional one at that. Must-have for any coffee beer fans.
