What the brewers say

“Bold coffee flavor and aroma with strong chocolate notes. Pours jet-black. Subtle dark fruit flavors. Dark roasted grains. Slight, warming alcohol presence. Full-bodied and great for sipping.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Blend of sweet roasty coffee, caramel, and chocolate. The malt and coffee play nicely. Some resinous hops are there as well. Somewhat boozy, but not harsh or offensive.”

Flavor: “Excellent blend of coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. Moderate sweetness accentuated by the chocolate that fades into moderate bitterness from a mix of subtle resinous hops and dark malt. Alcohol warmth and a touch of caramel, figs, raisins, and spice.”

Overall: “Excellent use of coffee and chocolate that build on an already great beer. The hops that come through especially help balance the sweetness from the chocolate and malt. Delicious—lip-smacking good! A rich and decadent note to end any evening.”
