3.6/5 rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
A: Murky mud brown. Not much carbonation to see, although even a smooth pour leads to a head that refuses to stop growing- it overflowed my glass twice now, even with sipping. I think I see some sediment at the bottom, which I never find appetizing. I'll focus on the comically large head instead.
S: Strong scent of semi-sweet coffee, some toasted malts in there too. A small platter of other dark smells, too- milk chocolate, hazelnut, a bit of smoke.
T: Lightly roasted coffee, some sweet cream, and dark malts. Even a bit of bitter hops contributing some resin flavors, which throws me a bit. Some alcohol in the burps. It's a coffee ale for sure, but the flavors just aren't harmonious. Finish is short.
M: Too fluid and too much carbonation for such heavy flavors. I like a thicker body for such strong dark flavors.
O: It provides the coffee, but winds up just not working very well. The flavors seem a bit thin and a bit disjointed, and the body definitely is. A noble attempt to mesh such wonderful drinks, but not a brew I'll consider again.
