I really like this beer. Very dark and robust, with a creamy coffee like flavor (as though I had added cream to my coffee). Flavors are really well balanced. Very nice mouthfeel. Great aromas. And I found that it is very reasonably priced.

Had it for the first time on tap at the Grill Next Door (Haverhill MA), and have since had it in bottles several times. Both quite good.

Highly recommended

Not sure how old the bottle is as I got it as an extra.

Pours out dark as night with a huge three-finger light brown head with really good retention with a good amount of lacing..

Smell is quite subdued with faint dark grains and even more faint smell of coffee. I can tell there is coffee because I was looking for it given the name but it is hard to get in the nose.

Taste is burnt malts with a little more coffee than in the nose. Definitely not a coffee forward type of beer but it is in there and it adds a little to what seems to be a pretty noncomplex beer and what I would say is pretty two-dimemtional.

Mouthfeel is is nice and I would say a 6 of a 10 scale which I think is about right or the style.

Overall this beer is really drinkable but nothing extraordinary as it seems pretty two-dimentional. I do really like the beer though. For being so simple it tastes pretty good. I wonder if this is an older bottle as it may have be better fresh as we all know lots of flavor fade with time especially coffee. I still am glad to try this but it isn't anything I would seek out again.
