Had last night at Cask Republic on tap, poured into a nonic pint glass. The beer pours out a super dark brown with a light brown head that leaves some spotty lacing. The head has great retention and takes awhile to die down.

Smell is a big roasted malt note with a little sweetness, strong coffee and espresso notes underlying. This beer has an awesome flavor, big malt notes upfront with a bit of sweet fruit. Next is just a wave of coffee, subtle sweetness throughout here. Finishes with some cocoa and a hint of char, but not much at all.

The body is superb, medium body in the stomach and silky mouthfeel. Overall this is one of the better coffee beers I've had in some time. New England really kicked ass with this one.

Wasn't a big fan of this. The coffee flavor tasted artificial and weak. It was very grainy and bitter to me. Perhaps an off-batch.

It wasn't bad, just not nearly what I expected. I enjoy Coffee Breath significantly more.
