On-tap at the brewpub; part of the high-gravity Conan series (minimum ABV = 6.9%, but this one was probably a bit higher).

A: Solid black body under a cap of sticky brown foam that forms a persistent ring, and reactivates with a swirl of the glass. Nice.

S: Pure, fresh, rich coffee. Simple, to the point, and very good.

T: Again, coffee absolutely dominates, but here the malt manages to join the party with a bit of chocolatey sweetness to balance the bitterness of the roasted coffee. Rich and delicious.

M: Nice full body, complemented with full, creamy carbonation. Quite nice.

O: This was my favorite thing that I tried at the brewpub, by a good margin. I loved that the coffee is never in any danger of being overshadowed by any of the beers other aspects, and yet there's enough body and malt presence to keep the coffee from going overboard into the realm of astringency. Very good beer indeed.

Cheers!
