On tap for Beachwood L.B.'s 3rd Anniversary event. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours asphalt black with a 1/4-inch thick dark mocha head which fades to a thin cap and yields spotty lace.

N: Amped up roasted coffee/espresso, earthy and spicy.

T: Follows nose with a powerfully coffee forward roasty note, dark chocolate, slightly sweet and bitter.

M: Full body and medium carbonation. Finishes roasty, rich, deeply layered coffee.

O: A sipper and thinker. Very enjoyable.

2013 Vintage
Sampled in Bruery Tulip Glass

Appearance: Very dark brown bordering on black with a fair-sized medium beige head. nice looker.

Smell: Upfront coffee with some moderate dark chocolate notes.

Taste: Coffee, unsweetened baker's chocolate and some roasted malt notes. The beer finishes with the coffee notes, and some mild hop and roasted malt notes. The alcohol presence is very subtle for the ABV.

Mouth-feel: Medium bodied with the perfect level of carbonation for the style (for my taste).

Overall: Even though this has been cellared (51F) for a few months the coffee still takes center stage. The prominent coffee, the good mouth-feel and the coffee nose work well for my tastes.

Poured into a snifter/stout glass. Enjoyed on 4/3

A - Dark as night with a full fingered off white mocha head with decent lacing. Looks more coffee colored than completely opaque

S - Smells like expresso, coffee, dark chocolates, milk chocolates and some bitterness mixed in.

T - Taste is much the same with an explosion of expresso and coffee. The back end fills in with some dark chocolates. Really a well balanced coffee presence

M - Mouthfeel is nearly perfect with a full bodied lightly carbonated creamy mouthfeel. Chewy and delicious

O - This is one of the better coffee stouts that i've had. Up there with Blueprint LSD, Sump and various others

Seek this out if you can as it deserves a higher rating than it has. Think there may have been a few bad bottles out there
