Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Poursa dark black with brown foam. Acts fast, leaves a ring. Oaty nose. Coffee/chocolate, expected. Taste is smooth, rich, flavorful. All ingredients blend together perfectly. Creamy. Dark chocolate is what lingers, and in a good way. Never an under or over flavored moment. Everything in full force. Fantastic.

A- Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Thick and Dark as night with a nice tan head at the top.

S- Smells like a fresh brewed cup o' joe! Also detected a hint of oatmeal and some chocolate as well.

T- Coffee, coffee, and more coffee up front. Definitely some oatmeal and hints of chocolate leading into a subtle bitterness at the end. I tasted a slight alcohol bite on the end as well but nothing crazy. Has a nice sweetness to it. Thick but not as thick as I expected from seeing the pitch black color.

M- Thick, viscous, but smooth as butter. Goes down easy and the flavors leave you longing for the next sip. Coffee flavor lingers for a while for sure.

O- Not a huge coffee drinker but I enjoy it from time to time. I was very impressed by the way founders pulled this one off. The 8% ABV is hidden quite well. Gotta hand it to them because I almost feel more awake after drinking it. Definitely not something I could drink more than 1 of in a sitting but a nice treat on a cold weekend.
