What the brewers say

“This beer is a thug that is available each year sometime in December. We work with Dark Matter Coffee to keep each batch as ruthless as it is tender.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A complex blend of chocolate, rich malt, and a hint of roast. Coffee is very subtle. Toasty graham cracker. Vanilla coffee with cinnamon. Some roasted malt.”

Flavor: “Sweet mocha stout with subdued hops bitterness. The medium coffee flavor substitutes for hops bitterness. Moderate to strong sweetness that slowly fades. Chocolate and rich malt with a bit of toast and a hint of roast. Somewhat warming from alcohol.”

Overall: “Coffee with lots of cream, several cubes of sugar, and chocolate flakes sprinkled over the top. A great dessert beer.”
