What our panel thought

Aroma: “Very strong cof­fee with none of the harsh­ness or veg­e­tal char­ac­ter some­times as­so­ci­ated with it. Very nice. Choco­late sweet­ness and pep­per spice come out as it warms.” Fla­vor: “All dark roast, all day with this one. The base beer sup­ports a very dark roast, earthy cof­fee while the choco­late adds rich­ness and silk­i­ness. The pep­per­corn shines through on the fla­vor as it did on the aroma.” Over­all: “Not for some­one look­ing for light, fruity notes. This is roast, fol­lowed by lovely roast. Tasty beer.”
