Bought a six pack, drank two beers on three separate occasions. First two at average fridge temp, tasted soapy.
The next two at room temp, soapy and very boozy (?)
The last two at freezer temp for an hour, not bad overall. Low carb, bland malt taste and less than average coffee flavor. Maybe i was unlucky

Pours a very dark brown with tan head. Coffee, espresso, raw dark cocoa, and roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice lightly sweet chocolate and coffee note.
