Unique bottle label data: none noted

Dark, opaque brown body with a one-finger thick, creamy, light tan head. Aroma combines elements of cocoa and coffee grounds.with deeply roasted grains; mocha. The flavors reflect the smell with some additional hop and coffee bitterness; mild astringency. Medium body; slightly sweet finish yet with a dry edge.

This beer could easily pass for a coffee stout. It presents many of the same elements across the beer sensory spectrum. At first, I thought it was rather weak and muddled, but the more I sipped, the more its depth and complexity opened up. The grains and coffee reign supreme and the alcohol remains well-hidden in the background. Well-balanced and delicious.

It didn't lie, it was too much coffee... The styles did not work in my opinion.

This one didn't work for me. Too much coffee. Smells like coffee and the flavor is dominated by that. The back end with the black ale added a weirdness to it. Overall was not a fan.
