Combining jet black color with incredibly smooth texture and decadent coffee flavor, BREWTALITY breaks the expectations of both rich espresso and dark beer to create a whole 'nuther beast. While brutal in alcoholic strength, this biggie beautifully showcases its roasted malt and coffee flavors without bringing on bitterness and bite. This is the first of two lagers in the series.

22oz bottle poured into tulip. Part of duct tape surprise bottle share at Beachwood. Very dark, nearly opaque brown body with a half-finger tan head that leaves patchy lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, and cocoa. Taste is slightly sweet initially with molasses and dark fruit flavors then an espresso roast bitterness follows. Medium-full body, sticky and thick texture, soft carbonation, and a dry, bitter finish.

Appearance. Pours dark brown, close to black in the glass and topped with half a finger of light brown head.

Smell. Big coffee for sure, some sweet caramel and dark roasty malts, molasses, and a bit of chocolate and fruit.

Taste. Big sweet dark malts and coffee, some dark fruit and molasses again. Quite like the nose.

Mouthfeel. Fairly full bodied and a touch sticky on the lips, low+ carbonation.

Overall. Super solid stuff here. Maybe a touch sweet for me, but a very well made beer.
