4.39/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A very strong coffee beer, both in terms of coffee presence and overall performance. Muddy appearance. Roasty powerful coffee notes overwhelm the nose, slight malt and chocolate presence underneath. Taste is still very coffee forward, but not as overwhelming as expected based on the smell. A definite sweet vanilla and chocolate presence. A bit of a bitter coffee aftertaste as well. Thick, slightly oily, big bodied, boozy, and bold. Really enjoyable, I bet this would make a great base beer for barreling.

Released 3/11/20; drank 3/12/20 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

An even pour yielded a nice tan head; a thick curtain of tree-rung lace.

Dark roast coffee bean, cream, mild dark chocolate & faint oak notes in the nose.

Thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Cream, dark roast coffee bean & dark chocolate flavors; no booze heat.

The coffee beans lacked a bit of depth, but the mouthfeel & chocolate notes made up for it. Slightly above average.
