On tap at Bukowski's. Inky dark with a thick tan head. Served too cold...needed to let this set for more than a few minutes before the true flavors came out. Aromas of dark roasted malt and fresh coffee. Maybe a burned caramel sweetness. Flavor was initially dark and roasted sugary sweet. "Oaty" coffee finish. Somewhat over-carbonted. Finish was dry and laden with coffee. Medium body...expected a fuller mouthfeel. Still, it was quite drinkable.
Serving type: on-tap

A - This beer is very dark. When held to the light only a faint ruby glow is perceptible. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head. There is a little lacing.
S - I smell some coffee, but it is not strong at all. There really isn't much else.
T - I get a some coffee and roasted malt. There is a mildly bitter finish.
M - Medium with low carbonation.
O - Full disclosure: this beer has two things working against it. This is my second beer of the evening. The first was a Peruvian Morning with huge coffee smell and taste. This beer lacks compared but still has its own merits. Second, this bottle was purchased in Massachusetts about ten months ago. I may have held on to it for too long. It is decent but not as good as the score indicates. i will revisit given the opportunity for a fresher bottle and a cleaner palate.
