head starts small so I increased the pour then suddenly huge head that takes up 3/4 of the glass, foamy fluffy head, light lacing, hazy sediment laden cranberry red color.
Nose big amber reddish malts, sweet little syrupy, toasty, brown sugar and toffee, coffee grinds mild coffee lighter roast, waft of booze, light alcohol esters and fruity, caramel coffee, quite syrupy like aroma.
Taste starts with a cold extracted coffee, mild roast with a light earthy nutty coffee flavor, light coffee syrup, toasted grinds but without any acrid burnt flavors or tannins, very smooth. Light caramel and toffee, amber malts, little toasty, brown sugar, etc, and a nutty Jamaican like coffee flavor. Faint booze warmth and taste, mild sweetness, chewy, rich. Some bitterness from light grassy earthy hops, little floral too. Finish is semi sweet and sticky, light booze, more smooth coffee, syrupy brown sugar toffee, and light earthy hop bitterness.
Mouth is med to fuller bodied, decent carb.
Overall not bad, very smooth coffee without tannins or bitter acrid flavors so must be cold extraction, nice flavors, sweets, and nice light hop infusion. Pretty tasty and surprisingly smooth and easy to drink.
