look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Haven’t had this one in a while, it was just re-released. Right out of the fridge I couldn’t help not tasting, mmmmm. I then restrained myself to let it warm up to get all the flavors.

Bottled 8/12/2016.

Poured into a Tulip glass.

Smooth dark pour, a finger’s worth of head, khaki color. After diminishing, rim head lasted throughout the tasting. Rim head? Is that accepted terminology? ha.

Smells are coffee, malts, and cocoa.

Taste of bitter sweet chocolate, coffee, malts, and caramel upfront. Finishes/lingers with bitter coffee and chocolate

Mouth is a full bodied feel, smooth, and light carbonation. Soft alcohol feel, no boozy ending.

Awesome beer, one of my favorite.
