Into a nonic, Red Eye pours an imposing black hue with only hints of ruddy rouge around the edges. The head is a good two fingers and maintains itself sturdily. Lacing is sticky and copious. Wonderful.

Certainly, coffee sits in the pole position with its roasty, bittersweet aroma taking hold upon the first sniff. A caramel/chocolate interplay surfaces upon further inspection with just a touch of earthy hop character buried beneath the layers of goodness.

Rich, chocolate/malt sweetness warmly rises above the coffee and cream body that first stands out. Lush notes of brewers' licorice and cinnamon sing out as the fuller, more pronounced aspect of the brew subside. No real hop aspect to the flavor with just a hint of alcohol (an impressive feat of subterfuge at 9.2%).

Rich silky texture with a full body and relaxed, creamy carbonation to put an emphasis on a rather luxurious beer. Well, it's just lovely and one of the finest entries into the Two Brothers Artisanal cannon. After a few misfires, the Bros. Ebel are back with a real gem. Buy it. Now.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Dark brown, almost black. Hard to produce a head. Looks kinda oily. Not much effervescence. Sediment is suspended throughout it.

S: Faint, but coffee, chocolate, and dark malt is present.

T: Coffee, dark malt. Nice and dark. Overall bitter, faint but lasting finish. Alcohol is nowhere to be found.

M: Smooth, mouth-coating, verging on oily.

O: It's pretty good, nothing that amazing, but I'm glad to have had it.
