The beer pours motor oil black with 1/2 an inch of dark tan head that fades into a thin layer of swirling oil that gently coats the inner glass leaving a light brown sheen. The coffee beams through in the beer's aroma - rich notes of caramel, freshly ground hardwood - it definitely has a lot more sweetness than spice (but certainty isn't cloying). The taste is an incredible flood of coffee on the palate, with the same rich caramel-like sweetness upfront followed by a hint of fruit (bright berry) and a semi-dry, bitter coffee finish. It's Coffee>>Stout. The mouthfeel is heavy (compared to a thinner body in the non-coffee version), is devoid of carbonation, velvety smooth, has hidden alcohol, and finishes a tad dry with coffee bitterness coating the palate. This is definitely a slow sipper, I would have preferred to share the 750 (instead of dome-ing it), but I do not regret the $16 spent...I'm glad I grabbed another bottle to open next weekend, but I'm not sure if I should hit the beer with a spot of half&half and serve @ 190 degrees in a styrofoam cup or serve slightly chilled on a cold winter night....

Batch 2 with Karimikui coffee. 750 ml bottle poured into a snifter. Hint of ammonia in the nose-a little unpleasant. Pours dark brown/black with a quickly dissipating dark tan head. Taste is great-lots of deep roasty flavor, chocolate, fruity brightness from the coffee beans. Medium carbonation with robust mouthfeel that coats. Drink now if you have one. Really well done as usual.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a deep dark black color with a nice oily consistency. Nice tall dark tan head that is about 1.5 inches and is pretty dense and creamy. It recedes very slowly and leaves some nice lacing.

Aroma is pretty exquisite. Notes of fresh roasted bean and freshly brewed espresso. Notes of chocolate and dark cocoa bitterness. Nice sweet milk chocolate with an earthy burnt note. The aroma has notes of pecans and some almonds as well.

Flavor is delicious with notes of sweet malty goodness and some dark fruits that are quickly overpowered by a nice deep roasted notes of coffee. Nice notes of dark chocolate are present with a nice underlying burnt note. There is a nice finishing sweetness from the based LSD that gives the brew a nice rounded palette. Pretty delicious coffee beer with a nice silky and oily full buddy.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Bridge Tap House in St Louis.

A: Pitch black body, thin tan head settles into a ring and leaves faint lace. Solid but unspectacular.

S: Rich coffee dominates, with dark chocolate and caramel sweetness alongside. Terrific.

T: Even better than the aroma. Complex coffee is front and center, with woody and spicy overtones ahead of brownie batter, butterscotch, and vanilla. The sweet malts and bitter coffee coexist beautifully on the way to a long, decadent finish. Delightful.

M: Thick, lively, creamy. A bit sticky, but very nice.

O: Tremendous. I hadn't heard about this one, but I'm impressed.

Cheers!
