Much thanks to Scott for giving me the opportunity to try this one. Poured from a flip-top hand bottle into a snifter.

A- Pours a dark brown color with almost zero head. As the beer was consumed it left a thin brown film on the sides of the glass.

S- Very coffee forward. The aroma of roasted coffee grinds is almost overwhelming. Underneath it all, you can just make out enough chocolate malts to bring some balance into the smell.

T- A little more balanced than the aroma. A pleasant mixture of roasted coffee beans and chocolate malts. Upfront coffee dominates leading the way to a slightly sweet chocolate finish.

M- Very little carbonation. Also fell on the thin side when it comes to stouts. Just wished it had some more viscosity to the body.

D- The coffee can wear on the senses a bit. Almost desensitizes the taste buds, making the beer almost one dimensional.

Overall, very glad I received the opportunity to try this one. Coffee may be a little too much for me, but for those that enjoy them, seek this one out.

Black in color, Forms a tan-gray colored head. Good retention. nice lacing. Aroma is unexciting. Coffee, dark malts, and carbonation. Taste is much better. Dark roasted malts, coffee, slightly acidic coffee, slightly metallic, but little else. Medium bodied, very thin for the style, Moderate bitterness.
A sort of decent beer. Certainly not worth the hype or what this beer seems to be fetching.
