Picked up a bomber at Binny's while visiting Downtown Chicago on 5-11-18 for $12.99. Bottled on 3-13-18; consumed 9-17-18.

Beer poured black with a beautiful long lasting tan head.

Nose is wonderful, fresh coffee abounds!

Taste is coffee forward and mocha over chocolate malts and oatmeal balanced nicely by decent hopping to keeping the sweetness just in the background.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and very smooth from the oatmeal infused base.

Overall this beer is a nice surprise, very delicious! A bit pricey but a nice indulgence!

22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- jet black, creamy khaki head, reduces to a ring

S- bold fresh espresso mixes with mocha cream, vanilla icing, dark chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, molasses & chocolate cake

T- dark chocolate and roasted Malt up front are followed by a big it of herbal and earthy espresso that comes across very fresh. Mid-palate brings out some brown sugar, vanilla whipping cream & raisin. The finish gives more herbal espresso with a chocolate linger

M- medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and finish

O- fresh coffee and chocolate with high drinkability

Bottled 7/22/15; drank 8/16/15 @ the Yarchives.

Black/brown appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big dark tan head; a curtain of frothy lace.

Chocolate syrup & freshly brewed espresso notes in the nose.

Thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Chocolate syrup flavor up front; roasted coffee bean & cream notes on the finish.

A rich, sweet stout; not very complex but a nice dessert treat.

Really tasty coffee forward brew that has a nice slightly sweet finish. Highly crushable. I had to slow myself down a bit as it was going down too easily. Glad I got a chance to try this. Recommended if you come across it.
