Pours black, darker than most porters, this is stout territory appearance wise. Immense amount of coffee in the nose to it.

Almost too much coffee (have I said that before?) it covers up all the other stuff. The coconut, the macadamia nuts (expensivo!). Its good, its very good, but a little out of balance. Coffee beers are all over the place, but the Macadamia nut and coconut was the unique part, but they are a little bit obscured here.

Bottle share thanks to Toby. Dark and rich, elements of coconut, chocolate, vanilla. Very easy drinker. All of the elements play very well together for a well rounded beer.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of 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 coffee aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour cocoa and coffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is showing its age and this particular bottle is turning slightly sour.
