This beer is litterally straight up coffee. No real beer aspect to it, except it's carbonated.
THis is like the old perculated coffee my grandma used to make. THe nose is big coffee, the smell you guessed it. COFFEE!
The appearance is nice. Black with a nice mocha head.
This is a very unbalanced beer. Why spend the extra coin on this beer if you want coffee, just buy some coffee.
I hate coffee, but love a good coffee flavored beer if it is done right, a good balance.

32oz, filled 12/12/13
A: Pours what appears to be pitch black in the glass. It's a very deep brown. Some light around the edges of the glass. Still nice carbonation. Initially a half finger of light tan. Leaving some lacing bits.
S: Very pronounced coffee on the nose, akin to a FBS. Dark chocolate. Roast. Some vanilla. Chocolate milk like character.
T: Dark chocolate bitterness. Ground coffee. Some roast. That vanilla and cocoa like sweetness to match the bitter dark chocolate. Finish has lingering rich cocoa. Maybe a hint of booze.
M: Full bodied, but not super chewy. Fairly easy to drink
Serving type: growler
