Pours deep mahogany with nice ruby highlights. Large frothy light tan head that lasts a very long time. Very carbonated. Stick lacing.
The aroma is earthy and chocolatey coffee. Roast and some dark fruits. Spice, cinnamon, maybe a small amount of noble hop character. Warming alcohol becomes more present over time.
Again coffee in the flavor. More fruit forward, but dominated by roasted coffee. A mild amount of bitterness balanced with sweet caramel malts. Some spiciness as well.
Highly carbonated but still with a silky character. The finish leaves the earthy character of the coffee.
Very nice coffee aroma and flavor. Despite the high ABV, this is very drinkable. I'm a fan of the concept as well. Why not really let the coffee shine without being muddled by roasted malts with a very similar character?
