3.33/5 rDev -8.5%
A: Aggressive pour yields a 2 1/2 finger head of uniform bubbles. The head is tan and does not retreat quickly. The beer is dark black with ruby red edges in the light.
S: I smell coffee and vanilla. Maybe some boozy smells also.
T: The front is coffee. The midpalate has some boozy flavors to it. Then I get a mix of the 2 in the finish.
M: Slightly higher than expected carbonation. Still relatively smooth and creamy.
O: I think the alcohol could be hidden a little better at 8.2%. That is drowning out a little of the other flavors. I expected a little more vanilla or roasted malt flavors to accompany the light coffee taste. Overall this is a middle of the road beer. Would not seek it out - but would not turn it down either.
