The beer comes in a dark brown to black color with a light khaki head.

The aroma has an earthy coffee, cocoa, lots of roasted malt character.

In the front, there is a rush of black coffee. Then the beer moves onto this interesting cacao nib quality. It’s bitter, but pure of chocolate essence with hints of dried dark fruit. The middle has a touch of alcohol to lift up the beer. With a touch of vanilla and lots of wood and oak drying on the finish.

The mouthfeel is medium plus.

Reminds me slightly of Victory at Sea, but not as full in flavor and luscious. Still a fantastic coffee brew, even with over a year on it.

One of the base beers in my recent trade with madnismo, shared one of these tonight with my Tuesday night friends.

2 finger tan head... pretty good retention and okay lacing atop a very dark brown beer that still shows nice ruby highlights at the stem.

Nose is an enticing mix of cocoa, coffee and hints of oaky vanilla.. dark caramel sugary essence helps carry and marry the aromas.

Bigger vanilla bloom on the palate that doesn't show in the nose... plenty of cocoa, coffee is lesser than the nose... dark roasty malts also don't show as much as expected... a sorta nutty malt moves in with the vanilla/caramel mash-up and produces an easy drinking brew.

Body is surprisingly light given the 10%... good carbonation, but still thick and coating... very drinkable... deceiving.

Thanks again Nathan for the great trade.

All 3.75's
