4.36/5 rDev +8.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: pours very dark amber in color, almost dark brown. with a solid 2 fingers worth of khaki colored head formation. the lacing is quite nice and after 2-3 minutes there is still about 1/2 fingers worth of "filmy"head remaining
S: as expected, huge coffee grounds and come forward, heavy oats, there is also a sweet caramel backbone, and dark chocolate presence.
T: not as much coffee as i was expecting. don't get me wrong, it is still present, but this brew has a huge sweet toffee character and a big vanilla wafer finish. i also pick up some light rye notes
M: solid medium bodied brew. and this is where the coffee really sticks out as it lingers on the palate.i don't pick up any alcohol notes whatsoever either.
O: I find this one similar to Rye-on-Rye, just with a perfect amount of coffee. The coffee sits in very nicely with the strong sweet toffee, and quite honestly its a terrific balance. definitely worth a try/purchase
