Draft at AleSmith. March, 2013.
Pitch black and opaque with a two finger, frothy beige head that has great retention, only slowly fading into a thick, lasting ring. The glass is left coated with streaks of soapy lace.
Robust roasted coffee bean and dark malt aroma. Very inviting with gourmet roast, dark chocolate, toast, burnt sugar and subtle lactic cream. Underneath, there is some sweetness with bakers chocolate, caramel and toffee.
Full bodied and slightly viscous with a blast of deeply roasted coffee bean flavor. Somewhat dry and bitter but pretty smooth and not acrid at all considering how much coffee flavor it has. Some burnt toast along with gourmet coffee bean followed by oatmeal, strong dark chocolate flavor, fudge, sweeter bakers chocolate, caramel and toffee. The robust coffee, dark malt and sweeter dessert-like flavors are very well balanced and the high ABV is excellently masked, making this beer deceptively drinkable.
Serving type: on-tap
