Split with Threelions.

A - Poured into a night shift tulip a super rich dark black with a thin mocha head that faded to leave a thin halo and light wisps. Nice legs.

S - Aromas of light chocolate and roast, Nice rich fragrant coffee notes. No bitterness this is very rich smelling. Coffee pops nicely too.

T - Taste is light creamy chocolate, light roasted malts, creamy lactose. The coffee is there no super assertive but prominent and rich. The cold pressing is a nice touch and really translates well to the beer.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly creamy smooth, lowly carbonated.

O - Overall this was a tasty beer, very balanced beer. Well fine.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Decent creamy head, dark mocha colored, decent lacing, very dark beer with slightest hint of light.

Nose tons of coffee, fresh espresso roasted coffee, nutty and earthy, soft like roast, some light fresh choc, European soft choc, little caramel, fudge, roast, creamy milk and lactose, etc.

Taste fresh coffee, soft coffee no real tannins, fresh earthy nutty coffee. Mild caramel and roast, quickly into mild choc, soft creamy lush cocoa and lactose, fluffy feeling, little fudgey even. Hint chewy, little hop note. Finish is creamy slightly dry, little sticky, fudgey, choc, mild coffee.

Mouth is creamy, decent carb, med to fuller bod.

Overall pretty nice, coffee is awesome, base beer is pretty good.

A: Pours into my treehouse tulip a light-stealing gravity warp of a dark beer. No real head, but very leggy. This is the epitome of darkness. Very light carbonation.

S: I sort of wish I weren't drinking this so late in the day because this smells like some of the best coffee I could imagine. Doesn't smell overly bitter, chocolate in the background but again not bitter. Light heat in the nose.

T: Wow, right up there. Out of the gates the coffee was there but the chocolate was far more up front. Nice lactose, not overly sweet. Nothing too bitter. Very well balanced. So tasty. Very light bitterness on the finish but it's really only a whisper.

M: Very silky, smooth. No real carbonation. Almost syrupy, close, but not quite there thankfully. Would have benefited from some more carbonation.

O: This is delicious. Super dark, leggy but no real head and little to no carbonation cut down from what would have been higher marks. The smell hit me right in the face with a great coffee smell with no astringency. Taste is the best part of this beer. Nothing too assertive which is preventing a five here but the balance is incredible. Nice chocolate, coffee and lactose flavors that meld together into a remarkable tasting beer. The mouth if semi lackluster. No carbonation, silky smooth and creamy holding it together. Great drinking beer.

On tap at the brewery. Judging from this beer and the porter I'd love to try the barrel aged stuff but at $5 a taster I think I'll pass on them this time through Fresno.

Huge coffee aroma, you would swear that this beer was hot w steam coming off of it. Taste is very coffee heavy also with a very subtle chocolate sweetness and a milk/cream mouthfeel and finish. The finish smooths out which has almost no coffee acidity. Get one if you can, once a year release that can be found on shelves until around April.
