12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Batch #9363, packaged on September 22, 2009.

A: Black body with a two-finger coffee-colored head.

S: Coffee all up in your grill. No subtlety at all. Not that that's a bad thing, mind you.

T: Major coffee up front, in the middle, and in the back. Also some hints of chocolatey and smoky flavors.

M: Not all that thick.

D: This was the first coffee beer I ever had. And it's still one of the best.

12oz bottle in pint glass

this one pours black with one finger of dark head. it smells sweet, creamy and coffee like. it has a creamy medium body. the coffee taste is not very strong, although the flavor is more sharp, like black coffee. there is a nice roastiness as it warms and opens up. the aftertaste is like fresh raw coffee beans. well balanced and drinkable.
