4.65/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours with a nice bubble show that delivers two fingers of beige foam perched above the jet black liquid; good lacing action

Smell: Rich espresso aromatics with milk chocolate tones underneath

Taste: Chocolate and espresso intermingle, with the lactose adding a softer dimension and a hint of vanilla; moderate bitterness, from the espresso, builds in the middle and all the elements are well-balanced into the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; creamy

Overall: Really enjoying these New Anthem beers during my week at the beach; yesterday, an NE IPA wowed me and today, this beer stands out being as good as any non-BA coffee beer I have ever tasted

This beer is so good! Dark pour with 1/2 inch tan head that fades. Lacing rings the glass. The smell is roasted malts and STRAIGHT espresso coffee!! The taste is very coffee forward with nice roasted malts mid way with a bite in the back. The feel is perfect for the abv! Overall I am going back to the brewery to get more of this beer!
