Consumed on draft at Pizza Port San Clemente on November 21sr, 2015.

Extremely dark mahogany - almost black. Khaki head starts thin and quickly becomes small crown. Some sheeting.

Mild aroma of coffee and dark roasted malt. A dash of vanilla.

Flavor is sweeter than expected. Coffee is restrained. Thin but roasty dark malt. Slight nuttiness. Mildly bitter finish. A little dash of cough syrup.

Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety.

Overall nice effort.

On tap for the 4th Anniversary event at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and roasted coffee and espresso beans. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors that make it tasty and easy to drink.

Enjoyed at the 2012 Arizona Strong Beer Festival, where it was kept in a secret growler behind the more mundane taps. Poured into a small taster glass.

Dark chocolate brown, opaque except at the edges, where it gives up burnt umber. The head’s the colof and consistency of cappuccino foam.

Pizza port does coffee so well. The brilliant nose is packed with espresso, cream and sugar — it’s like a cappuccino delivered straight to the nasal receptors.

Wow. Deep, dark and slightly spicy espresso in the flavor — sharp and funky in the front. Things smooth out at the swallow, when the beans are met with sweeter dark chocolate, chocolate milk and the lightest hint of dark fruit that somehow takes their edge off. Sweetness carries into the finish. Fantastic.

Medium, pinching carbonation in a creamy body that’s thick and viscous. A tiny bit of fizz breaks out as it moves, and I get a hint of heat — though whether it’s from the coffee or the booze, I can't be sure.

Very, very glad I got to try this brew. It’ may be a little heavy to enjoy with breakfast, but I dig it. It’s so packed with coffee I have a feeling I'll be up from dusk ‘til dawn.
