Everything looks better on a nitro-tap, hence the high score. Nice think and creamy head crowns the dark lightly carbonated brew.
Smell was slightly coffee but not overly so. Kinda burnt roast smell.
The taste was sweet up front. the coffee was mellow. Lets call it a breakfast blend. more dunkins than 'bucks. But nice. Slightly chocolate.
This beer wasn't crazy, it was smooth and low key. A good beer. I have nothing bad to say about it, but nothing exceptional either. I think that you will enjoy it and I plan on trying it out of a bottle as well if I see it around.
Serving type: nitro-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.
