Had this on tap at the AleSmith brewery - they had multiple variations (Vietnamese Coffee, etc.) and I have had this in the bottle and I can say without a doubt this is one of the two best beers on the planet - and that is a guarantee my friend.
The other best beer in the world would be Parabola by Firestone Walker.
This beer is pure flippin Bliss from start to finish. It is thick, rich, complex, smells fantastic, tastes fantastic, pours fantastic, smooth and just nothing at all bad that can be said about it at all...and I mean absolutely nothing!!!
Unfortunately for all of us, it is in extremely limited supply. Finding a bottle will be difficult. I would suggest doing whatever you can to get one (yes even if it costs $100...it is seriously worth it) If you do find one, I'm not sure you want to share even a drop of it...yeah it's that good. On the other hand, other people have got to experience this so you almost need close friends to taste it so you can forever brag about you giving them a sip of it....but really it's tough because you want to drink it all yourself.
I leave the decision up to you.
I drank every drop of mine...and told my buddies where they could get it that day...it was gone the next day...too bad for them!!!

Serving type: on-tap
