3.59/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Very dark ruby color that looks black out of direct light, with a fine, dark tan head.

Aroma: Strong aroma of roasted coffee beans, and some tobacco/ash.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Immediately noticeable on the tongue is a strong, bitter, dry coffee flavor with some cigar ash close to the finish. The finish is dry and bitter, like strong black coffee, but there is a soft note of vanilla in it as well. I would liken some of the flavor to the oils from a pressed coffee bean; very strong, acrid, and intensely bitter.

Final Word: Again, this brew is intensely bitter! Not only is it a beer brewed with dark roasted malts, but also a lot of hop additions as well, which means that what bitterness you don’t get from the coffee malts you’ll get instead from the strong hop presence. It feels like a coffee stout for hop heads, as there is only just enough sweetness in there to keep the beer from completely overwhelming you, and the profile is noticeably more bitter than the coffee stouts you’d like to initially compare it to. The quality of the flavors in this beer is still very good, and both hop and coffee lovers will be in heaven, but the ashy, acrid bitterness will overwhelm many other drinkers who aren’t prepared for the wallop this beer delivers. The similarity to strong black coffee actually warrants a pairing with breakfast foods, though I’m not recommending waking up with this beer! Try it if you love hops and black coffee, but avoid it if you can’t handle said ingredients or are looking for a sweeter, more well rounded dark beer.

3.58/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours fairly deep brown, but not quite black, with hints of light sneaking through the body, producing some lighter red tones. A medium, tan colored head forms and retains amazingly well. The lacing is also very good.

S- First scent that is prominent is a quick hit of floral hops bitterness. Right after the hops, dark roasted malt scents kick in. Bitter, dark coffee is the primary dark malt in the scent. After the dark malts, some of the floral hops qualities come back.

T- Starts with a fairly strong dose of the dark roasted malts, again, primarily bitter coffee flavors. This persists throughout, but the hops start kicking in shortly after the malts. The hops are moderate in strength, but not strong enough to overcome the roasted malts, which begin to take over. The flavors combine to turn into kind of a watered down mix of both profiles. The brew ends with a continued roasted bitterness, combined with some of the hop bitterness.

M- Not heavy in body, yet not light. The hops and dark roasted malts combine to be a little slower to drink than other black ales. Overall weight is somewhat watery and thin.

Serving type: bottle
