Out of a bottle into my tulip. Picked up in trade from Kevinpitts (Thanks Kevin!)

A – Deep and dark brown on the pour with a finger of milk chocolate lacing that settles down nicely.
S – Roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and cream. Nice.
T – Just a nice roasted malt character out of the gate. Follows up with flavors of dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso, cream and molasses. Touch of trace bitterness that mixes with a cream like sweetness that balance each other nicely. Breathy alcohol at the end.
M – Medium to full bodied. Medium carbonation. Leaves a nice click creamy taste on the palate.
O – So this beer is all in my wheelhouse so I may be bias. I love beer and coffee and this mixes it very well. Nice strong coffee flavor that doesn’t overpower the beer. Even the person who doesn’t dig coffee will find something to like here. Just a fine brew all around. Pick this up if you can. You will not be sorry.

Pours heavy and thick with not much head to speak of, but a thin golden brown.

Smells like a coffee house, some roasted malt, earthy, and sweet.

Tastes like a dark chocolate infused dark roast coffee blend, very sweet, but very tasty.

Mouthfeel is rich and smooth, definitely a dessert brew.

Overall, I'd be happy to pick this up again! Would love to try this on draft once they open their taproom here in Chicago.
