Haven't seen this in CA yet, but stumbled upon a few at Beverages 4 Less today.
A: Poured from bottle with a brown hue, but once in my glass it is a deeper brown/black, nearly impervious to light. A single finger tan/sand head topped by brew, but left nothing but patches in just seconds.
S: Sweet cocoa and ground coffee is what I get form the nose. Also slightly nutty (hazelnut).
T: Wow that is seriously close to drinking coffee. A nice mild finish with a hint of bitterness. I can't help but think I'm drinking a well sweetened iced coffee. Quietly complex.
M: Well balanced flavors. A bit less body that I would prefer, but this beer pulls it off. Still very similar to iced coffee. Sublte warming affect.
D: Very delicious and drinkable. I don't know how many of these I would drink in a night, but I could see this being the go to morning beer, if there is such a thing. Great coffee profile and it stands out among others like it.
